HERRIMAN, Utah (ABC4 News) – A Herriman 9th grade student won Best of Show at the Utah State Fair with his 400-pound iron mascot, then donated it to his middle school. 

Joseph Barwick, a student at Fort Herriman Middle School, spent more than 200 hours constructing the giant diamondback snake. The mascot is made of old shovels, parts from transmission shops, plows, lawnmower blades, scrap pipes even pocket watches that Joseph was able to find.

Joseph did all the welding to create the five-foot tall iron statue. It was delivered to the school and presented to Principal Rodney Shaw Tuesday morning.
