ESPN has done a feature on all 50 U.S. states listing which sports figures would be on a Mt. Rushmore for their respective state. UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar is featured on ESPN’s ‘Mt. Rushmore of Sports’ for the state of South Dakota.
Each individual does not have to necessarily be from the state, but they do have to have played there or have some sort of ties. Some sports figures are on multiple states , such as MLB great Henry “Hank” Aaron (Alabama, Georgia, Wisconsin), Peyton Manning (Indiana, Tennessee) and Michael Jordan (Illinois, North Carolina).
