Outfitted with helmet, sword and shield, gleaming smile and prodigious muscles - it can be no other than the Scarlet Knight from Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, one of the nation's most historic universities. The Knight has to be smiling, because Rutgers is now a member of the Big Ten and desires to be in the possession of any deserving alumnus or fan.

Rutgers colors actually came well before the Knight existed. It's well known that in 1869, Rutgers hosted Princeton in the first ever collegiate football game. In order to distinguish themselves from the Princeton players, Rutgers gridders wore scarlet turbans and handkerchiefs. But it wasn't until 1955 that Rutgers students selected the Knight as the school mascot, taking the place of the chanticleer, a rooster.

You can possess your own Scarlet Knight, all rock-solid 47 pounds of him. Produced of the finest premium cast stone and finished in (of course!) scarlet, or if you prefer, in vintage graystone or rich bronze. In any event, the Knight will be a welcome addition to your collection of Rutgers memorabilia. Free shipping is included with your purchase.
