Students from San Elizario High School’s (SEHS) Class of 2020 collaborated with a group of students in need of credit hours on various murals that show school spirit, including one called “The Talon.”
“The Talon” mural is known as an eagle’s large, hooked claw and it is painted on one of the walls of the Vicente Delgadillo Jr. Field House, right in front of the football team’s locker room.
“This mural is special because its purpose is to serve as a symbol of motivation for the football team,” said Karla Ruiz, Art teacher at SEHS.
“As they exit the locker room, it is the first thing they see and the intention is for each player to get pumped before their game.”
The football coaches and players were amazed when they saw the mural that was made for them and appreciate the gesture.
“Our school definitely has some of the most talented students,” said Albert Lopez, SEHS football linebacker.
“Every piece of art that they do is awesome but my favorite is “The Talon” because it best represents us as a team and as a high school.”
