David Robinson of Charleston has been a Gamecocks fan for a long time. So after he completed a Lego project of Green Bay's Lambeau Field that he was given for Christmas, the next logical step for him was to make a replica of Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia.
A few months and over 5,000 Lego pieces later, Robinson finished the project and when he tweeted pictures of it on Monday, Gamecocks nation took notice.
Son and I finished our Lego project. Turned out well, I think. Over 5k pieces and many hours. My son wanted y’all to see it @MarcusLattimore @cmshaw14 @TheWorldof_AJ @clownejd pic.twitter.com/SOb6iETXDu— David Robinson (@DavidRo50) June 11, 2018
South Carolina legends like George Rogers, Connor Shaw and Marcus Lattimore were among the thousands of likes and retweets Robinson got on his pictures. Not bad for something that was supposed to be a hobby for him and his son.
"My son is a big Lego guy" Robinson said on Thursday. "and I wanted to try and do something that he would appreciate that we could do together."
Robinson says he's not sure what he'll do with the replica next. He's had suggestions to take it to Lego museums or events but at this point, he can't fit the entire project through his front door.
