Harbaugh Unveils George Jewett Trophy

Michigan Coach John Harbaugh on Monday unveiled the George Jewett trophy to the press, five days before the first game in the new series. "It has great significance," Harbaugh commented, "The first trophy in FCS history that is a trophy for an African-American student-athlete."

The new trophy is 36 inches tall, bronze, and depicts Jewett wearing both a football uniform and a medical coat. He is carrying both a football and textbooks. The trophy's base contains plaques identifying Jewett, a Michigan logo, and a Northwestern logo. The sculpture of Jewett can rotate on the base, facing either the Michigan or NU logo, depending on which team claims the trophy. It is likely the first-ever trophy the appearance of which changes depending on the winning team.
