On Friday, Virginia Tech will wear special helmets to honor the victims of the tragedies in Newtown,CT and Blacksburg,VA in the Russell Athletic Bowl against Rutgers. The coaches will be wearing the same ribbon from the helmet, and the jerseys will have one stitched on as well. The decal on the helmet is half orange to represent Virginia Tech and half green to represent Sandy Hook Elementary. 58 is the total number of deaths in the two shootings.
Its nice to see so many people across the country rally around Newtown during this traumatic time. We have covered a lot of special helmets and uniforms here but none will ever be as touching as this.
