Mississippi State released an incredible video Tuesday night honoring Mike Leach.
In honor of the Pirate, Mississippi State released a tribute video for football fans around the country, and it’s required watching for anyone who was a fan of Leach.
Mike Leach will forever be remembered as a legend.
As we’ve covered extensively at OutKick, Leach was a larger than life personality who lived life his own way.
He didn’t fit a mold. He was his own man, and he embraced being unique instead of running from it. That’s an attitude and spirit that we’re rapidly losing in America.
The outpouring of support all day Tuesday after his death was announced is proof of the kind of impact he had on people.
Yes, he was an outstanding football coach, but honestly, that wasn’t nearly the most interesting thing about Mike Leach. He loved history, was a great conversationalist and was never afraid to provide any opinion on anything.
Now, at the age of 61, the football community has lost Leach far too soon. The video from MSU is a reminder of the hole that now exists. Rest easy, Coach Leach, and keep swinging your sword.
