On November 4th, the Quicken Loans Carrier Classic trophy was officially unveiled for the public, and like we had all imagined, it is a thing of beauty.
As with any big-time game that involves bragging rights, the players dream of hoisting the trophy above their heads with elation. For the Quicken Loans Carrier Classic, the trophy that will be awarded to the winner has been cast and created. Let me tell you something – it is truly remarkable.
Huntington Ingalls Industries (NYSE: HII) announced today that the company’s Newport News Shipbuilding (NNS) division is designing and building the trophy for the 2011 Quicken Loans Carrier Classic Division I Men’s Basketball game. NNS’s participation to build the trophy was announced and a trophy mock-up was unveiled during a press luncheon this morning at the New York Athletic Club.
