We are proud to announce Daniel A. Moore’s release,
This masterwork in oils will document Alabama’s exciting last-second field goal block that sealed its win over Tennessee on October 24 at Bryant-Denny Stadium. The artist notes, “As was the case with Desperation Block, my 1991 painting of Alabama’s blocked field goal effort by Penn State, this painting is also titled after the name of the defensive scheme that was called.” Guessing that the Vols were not going to attempt a fake, Coach Saban called for his “maximum block” unit–sending all 11 players after the ball. Moreover, Maximum Block is, as the artist explains, his portrayal of “… the Maximum defensive effort given, by the Maximum number of players on the field (including the Maximum size of the field-goal blocker!), in order to preserve a win of Maximum importance.”
