Over at the ESPN site they put together a little survey to determine every singles states Mount Rushmore as far as sports heroes go.

On the Washington State page you have people nominated like Don James, Fred Couples, Ken Griffey Jr, Steve Largent, John Stockton, Edgar Martiniez, Lenny Wilkens, Gary Payton, Jack Sikma, and Elgin Baylor

Just a reminder Mount Rushmore has four presidents carved into the side of it. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln.
