No single image represents Coach Paul W. “Bear” Bryant’s defensive philosophy better than a historic play against Penn State in the 1979 Sugar Bowl. With fourth-and-goal inside the Alabama one-yard line, Mike Guman was stopped cold by linebacker Barry Krauss and the swarming Crimson Tide defense. The effort preserved the 14-7 victory for Alabama and clinched its tenth national title, the fifth under Coach Bryant. “The Goal Line Stand” was the artist’s first of many popular Alabama football paintings.
Aldridge Art Gallery is open Monday-Friday from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Check for gallery closings due to private events at aldridgegardens.com.
