Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III earned some bronze hardware in winning the Heisman Trophy during his final season at Baylor University.

Now Griffin is getting some more bronze to commemorate his career with the Bears.

According to David Ubben of FOX Sports Southwest, Baylor is dedicating a bronze statue of Griffin outside their new stadium in Waco.

The 9.5-foot statue of Griffin will be installed the week of Baylor’s first game on August 31 against Southern Methodist University. It will be located on the stadium’s south end zone plaza.

Griffin is the only player in Baylor history to win the Heisman Trophy. During his final season, Griffin completed 72.4 percent of his passes for 4.293 yards, 37 touchdowns and six interceptions in 13 games. Griffin also rushed for 699 yards and 10 touchdowns before being selected by the Redskins with the No. 2 overall pick of the 2012 NFL Draft.
