Missouri will rock special decals Thursday in honor of Mike Leach.
The Tigers play Wake Forest in the Gasparilla Bowl down in Tampa, and Eli Drinkwitz’s players will wear a Mike Leach decal featuring a pirate logo and a cowbell.
You can check out the awesome gesture below.
It seems like every single time you open Twitter or read a new story somewhere, a new person or team is paying homage to the former Mississippi State coach.
There’s no doubt Leach impacted a ton of lives. You only hear great stories about him, and now, Missouri will be the latest team to honor him.
Previously, Miami (OH) also wore helmet decals for the legendary and larger than life coach.
You don’t get to choose how people remember you in death. All you get to do is live a life that hopefully impacts people for the better. There’s no doubt Mike Leach did just that, and that’s why the reaction has been so powerful since he died earlier in December.
Swing your sword high and never stop being yourself. It’s the greatest life lesson Leach ever left the world.
