A statue in front of Bright Complex was dedicated in October 2010 in honor of the first Aggie to win the Heisman trophy. The bronze statue stands 12 feet tall. Steven Whyte, a portrait sculptor based in California, shaped the statue.

Crow, class of 1958, played halfback and won the Heisman Trophy in 1957. During Crow’s collegiate career from 1955 to 1957, the Aggies were 24-5-2 under legendary Coach Paul “Bear” Bryant. Crow went on to play for the NFL for 11 years. He then coached football at both the collegiate and professional levels, finally returning to A&M in 1983, as assistant athletic director under Jackie Sherrill. Crow was athletic director from 1988 to 1993.

The statue was moved to the north side of Kyle Field in 2015 as part of the stadium renovation project.
