The image of the Seahawks’ Richard Sherman tipping a Colin Kaepernick pass away from Michael Crabtree to be intercepted by teammate Malcolm Smith in last season’s NFC Championship game could be reproduced as a statue if some diehard Seattle fans have their way.

Here’s what the group’s official website, has to say about the project.

The vision for Build The Tip came from two die-hard Seahawks fans who believe Richard Sherman’s tipped pass to Malcolm Smith to win the NFC Championship was a moment so pivotal, awe-inspiring, and emblematic of everything great about the 2013 Seattle Seahawks team, that it should be immortalized for future generations of Seahawks fans to enjoy. The play will be captured in a magnificent bronze sculpture designed and built by local artist Kevin Pettelle. The sculpture will pay tribute to the entire Super Bowl XLVIII championship team by incorporating every 2013 Seahawk player.

Build The Tip is in discussions with the Seattle Seahawks organization, Seattle city officials, and various local property owners to choose a location for the sculpture next to CenturyLink Field which will allows fans to enjoy and interact with The Tip on their way into home games.

Seahawks fans everywhere can contribute to the success of the project by donating to the campaign at, officially opening for donations on July 28 at 12:12 pm. Prizes will be given to all donors who contribute at least $12.

The campaign will run for 40 days, ending on September 5. Every dollar raised in the Build The Tip campaign above the cost of the project will be donated to charity.
