In "The Coach: Knute Rockne in the Locker Room at Notre
Dame," Friberg shifted his perspective to a locker room of the 1920s.
Rockne, a master at helping team members refine their skills, is probably most often
remembered for his ability to motivate his players and generate team spirit. Former Notre
Dame players of the Rockne-era upon seeing this work exclaimed that Fribergs
painting captured "exactly where and how Rockne stood."
