Ohio natives Csonka and Shula take part in Bicentennial celebration festivi

01/01/2005

Hall of Famers Larry Csonka and Don Shula helped the Pro Football Hall of Fame celebrate Ohio's Bicentennial. Both Csonka (Stow) and Shula (Grand River) were born in the Buckeye state.

The two joined painter Scott Hagan (middle in photo to left) put the finishing touches on a 30'x38' canvas. Hagan, who has painted the state's Bicentennial logo on a barn in all 88 counties in Ohio, painted the logo on the canvas that hangs from the side of the Hall of Fame. Hagan also painted the Hall's special 40th anniversary logo on the piece. The project has taken him several days to complete.
