UNLV Football Will Wear Special Helmets to Honor Victims of Vegas MassacreOctober 4, 2017
Here is the special helmet UNLV football will wear Saturday in tribute to the victims and in honor of the heroes from Sunday.
“Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the victims and the families impacted by this senseless act of violence,” athletic director Desiree Reed-Francois said in a statement. “While football is just a game, it can also serve as a rallying point of unity and allow all of us to recognize the incredible heroism displayed by so many this week. We are all extremely proud of our community’s response over the last couple of days.”
UNLV is three miles from the Mandalay Bay Hotel, where a gunman opened fire Sunday night on a country music concert, killing at least 59 people and wounding more than 500 others.
