The Detroit Lions will hold a moment of silence before Sunday’s (Dec. 5) game against the Vikings to honor the Oxford shooting victims. They’ll also sport an Oxford-themed decal on their helmets.
“Just as a starting point, we’re going to have T-shirts, we’ve got hats made, we’re going to have decals on the back of the helmets,” Lions coach Dan Campbell said in a statement.
He added, “We’ll have a moment of silence before the game certainly, but those guys are on our minds. And so we want to represent them on Sunday. I know there’ll be a group of those students and kids and people that have been affected that’ll be watching this game. Right now, that’s the best way to help them.”
Michigan will wear a patch on their uniforms on Saturday (Dec. 4) for their game against Iowa in the Big Ten championship in honor of the high school students who were killed in the shooting. The patch will feature four blue hearts and “T M” and “42” for Tate Myre, a star football player at the high school who was murdered.
