“Just as our game has evolved over years,
now, so has our trophy,” said Gary Stokan,
Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl CEO and President.
“The new Champions Trophy gives us a fresh,
modern look as one of the top six bowl
games in the country hosting the College
Football Playoff. We are anxious to
award it to our champion this year.”
The modern and elegant look of
the trophy is meant to capture the

The focal point is a slender satin-finished
tower made of bronze and plated in nickel
silver. A high-polished football replica
made of the same nickel silver plated
bronze sits atop the tower, engraved with
a full-color Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl logo.
Weighing 17 pounds, the removable football will
be hoisted in victory by the winning team.
The base, designed in the cross-section shape of a
football, finishes out the 26” tall masterpiece. It is
made from cherry-stained American walnut with
high-polished perpetual plates adorning each
side, highlighting winners dating back to the
inaugural game in 1968.
The trophy’s namesake, George P. Crumbley,
was the founder of the original Peach
Bowl in 1968 – creating the game as
a fundraiser for the Georgia Lion’s
Lighthouse Foundation. Crumbley
served as the executive director of
the game until 1985.
UCF won last season’s Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl and was the first team to hoist the George P. Crumbley trophy at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
