Texas Tech to honor Purple Heart recipients with uniform

Texas Tech to honor Purple Heart recipients with a special uniform on Nov. 9 against Kansas State.

Texas Tech will wear special uniforms on Nov. 9 against Kansas State that honor the Lone Survivor Foundation.


The foundation offers support to wounded veterans and their families, and Texas Tech will host 400 Purple Heart recipients for the game. It will be the largest gathering of Purple Heart recipients ever on American soil.


The wings on the helmet and shoulder pads pay tribute to the foundation's logo, and its motto "Never Quit" will be on the back of each player's jersey.


Here's a closer look at the uniforms:






Marcus Lutrell, a Houston native who founded the Lone Survivor Foundation, will also be in attendance, and Texas Tech's socks will honor him and those who died while serving with Luttrell.




Here are a couple more looks at the entire uniform:
