Will Rogers Statue On Tech Campus Wrapped In Black After Officer Killed

Texas Tech Saddle Tramps wrapped the Will Rogers statue on campus in black in honor of the fallen officer. The Saddle Tramps historically wrap the statue in times of tragedy. The last time it was wrapped was following the death of former Texas Tech head football coach Spike Dykes.

Before that, the statue was wrapped after the fatal homecoming crash in Oklahoma, and following the September 11th terror attacks.

Students Stephen Deasy and Maria Gonzales also showed support by wrapping a blue ribbon around the Texas Tech seal. Blue ribbons represent the law enforcement officers who have paid the ultimate price and given their lives in the line of duty. It also honors the officers who protect our communities. KCBD
