To commemorate Paul Rhoads’ first year at the helm as the head coach of the Cyclones, the Cyclone Gridiron Club (CGC) has commissioned an exclusive limited edition print.  The CGC commissioned Keith Sandvig, (who is also the father of Alex and Zac Sandvig’s, as well as a nationally recognized artist) to create this one of a kind print commemorating the success of the 2009 season.  The print depicts significant moments from the 2009 season including key plays, great victories and the Cyclones’ win in the Insight Bowl.

All proceeds from the sale of the print will go directly back to the Cyclone Football program.  The money will be used for non-budgeted football program items.  This includes items like new furniture for the players’ locker room, weight equipment, nutritional supplements, new signage and workout clothing.
