"I want to thank the Cowboy Club for donating the horse and rider statue to McNeese Athletics,” said athletic director Tommy McClelland.  “I believe this is a perfect choice for the front of the new field house. It is our hope that this statue will inspire the Cowboy spirit living within all of us.”
