We Are Marshall Today

The “We Are Marshall” Memorial Bronze piece by Sissonville native, Burl Jones, was dedicated on November 11, 2000. The statue was the idea of John and Ann Krieger of Huntington. Fans of Marshall football donated $150,000 for its creation and installation. It is attached to the Joan C. Edwards Stadium on the west facade.

The dedication plaque reads in part, “This memorial will stand for all time as a symbol of community resilience and as a reminder of the awesome strength that can flow from a people united with a common bond. It represents the life, legacy and legend that is Marshall University Football. This gift from our hearts has healed our hearts.”
