This statue, dubbed "Tecumseh" by the midshipmen many years ago, was originally intended to depict a Native American named Tamanend.

Today, the statue is a sort of good-luck charm for the midshipmen. Tecumseh is painted before every special event - he's been the Mad Hatter, a Top Gun pilot, an American flag and more - the midshipmen are extremely inventive.
