One fan believes Baker Mayfield is deserving of a statue.
We're not even three weeks into the college football season, but one Oklahoma fan is ready to give Baker Mayfield a statue for his efforts.
Yesterday, a Sooner fan by the name of Jason Newton started a GoFundMe to raise enough money for a Mayfield statue that simply "must be made."
All he needs is $500,000.
Here's what Newton wrote on his GoFundMe:
For starters, I expect Baker to win the Heisman Trophy. When that happens, a magnificant statue will be made. Will it look like this? Doubtful.
Regardless, if he does or not, he is an all-time great and my favorite OU player of all-time. I believe his performance and this team's performance at tOSU was one for the ages . I know I'm not alone.
That's why I'm staring this campaign.
Win or lose, Baker deserves a statue.
Whether it stands in Heisman Park or elsewhere, this statue must be made.
If he wins the Heisman, this fund will go to OU to build the statue and more. Of course, it won't take $500k to make the statue, so everything else left over will go to a Baker Mayfield scholarship for mutts, underdogs and anyone who demonstrates the moxy and passion for winning in Baker Mayfield style.
Let's make this happen.
You can donate to the fundraiser here, if you wish.
So far he's raised $110.
