John David Crow to be Honored in Berkeley

Posted by Taylor Price on June 2, 2010 – 10:58 AM

Former 49ers running back John David Crow (1965-1968) will be the subject of a special art unveiling on Saturday, June 12, from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at the Mussi Artworks Foundry in Berkeley.

The 1957 Heisman Trophy Winner will be honored when renowned sculptor Steven Whyte reveals a newly casted 12-foot bronze statue in the former 49ers likeness.

David Crow was the second overall pick of the 1958 NFL Draft by the Chicago Cardinals and went on to make four Pro Bowls. In his 11 seasons of professional football, seven with the Chicago/St. Louis franchise (known as the Arizona Cardinals today) and four with the 49ers, David Crow rushed for 4,963 yards and 38 touchdowns. He also caught 258 passes for 3,699 yards and 35 touchdowns.

The unveiling is one aspect of the foundry’s “Moonlight Pour Party,” which will also feature a live bronze sculpting demonstration and live music. For more information on the event visit http://www.artworksfoundry.com.

    Looks a lot like the bronze statue of Pat Tillman at the Cardinals Stadium.

    Steven Whyte’s work is wonderful and some should reside in the new stadium.

    John David Crow was a good 49er for 4 years. I’m glad to see that someone is honoring him in this way. Long time 49er fans might appreciate his contributions as a 49er. Thanks.
