ASU alumnus, Davidsonian Weston Short, bought an old army truck and refurbished it into something that would make Yosef proud.


Short’s modifications to the vehicle include a fresh coat of black and gold paint, a seat platform from a bass fishing boat with removable handrails, a generator that provides 3,000 watts for a blast siren, a griddle for cooking breakfast, a rope light outlining a 3-foot-wide football, a restored trailer with a charcoal grill and mounted stainless steel countertops, and stairs off the back of the truck.


Short won this year’s ESPN Tailgate Traditions photo submission contest.


Short and his friend, Adam Rhyne, won airfare, hotel accommodations, and tickets for the New Year’s Day Rose Bowl match up between the Penn State Nittany Lions and the Southern California Trojans.
