Photos were chosen solely based on aesthetic appropriateness for the image. Otherwise you would only be seeing the champs up there! Perhaps we’ll see something like that somewhere else… Report Reply Post a new comment Enter text right here!

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — A new mural which covers the back of the new Wellington press box at the Sellers Park football field was erected this morning. It culminates almost a year of planning and forethought and has most certainly put a stamp on what Crusader football is all about.The mural, sponsored through the general donation of Impact Bank, is a story of 100 years of football. The 39 by 15 foot vinyl canvas digital production is the imaginary work of Wellington High School graduates Steve Sturgis and Samson Ledesma and is similar to the one that was made in the Wellington High School weight room.On this Crusader collage mural, if you look closely you will see:• In the upper right corner – a picture of the first football team at Sumner County High School in 1903;• In the upper left corner – is a picture of the undefeated 1967 football team;• In the center there is the bridge where the players have gathered before the start of a home game for decades;• To the right are three current football players Jaden Hines, Austin Dunn and Trey Coulter;• In the middle there is the hoisting of the 2001 state championship trophy;• On the right, is a picture of the victory bell;• On the left is a faceless Crusader (who happens to be quarterback Trevor Nance) with more images inside including Taylon Ybarra and Zach Parent (Editor’s note: this is a knockoff of an Ohio State football promotion ad);• And there in the middle left is a current Crusader receiver Connor Phelps in action.Click here for larger image.Impact Bank President Bob Leftwich said when the old press box came down in 2012 and a new one was put in the place, the bank wanted to put up another sign. The bank had paid for a red mural sign that had covered the back of the old press box which included a Crusader emblem and a list of the teams’ state championships.This time, though, they wanted to do something different – reflect a mood. “It was a team effort,” Leftwich said. “We wanted something that showed the various eras of Wellington football and its rich tradition.”So pictures were gathered from various places: old yearbooks, Steve Sturgis website and one from Susan Treft.“Then we just let Sam do his magic and come up with a design,” Leftwich said.Producing the mural was no easy feat. For one thing the digital file was huge to produce a 585 square foot frame. That required a digital file that had to be sent via CD disk to Luminous Neon Inc. in Wichita, which produced the sign.The mural was to be erected in May. But that was delayed when the measurements for the sign was wrong.But in the end, the sign came together and was erected on Aug. 1.Leftwich said the bank is looking at illuminating the sign with lights so it will have a huge impact at night.No one knows the lifespan of a sign like this. Probably five to 10 years – depending on Mother Nature. Then it would be time to replace it.“It was a collective effort by a large group of people,” Leftwich said. “I think it most certainly shows what Wellington football is all about and how important it is to the community.”Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
