Tennessee Football Team to Wear Helmet Stickers Honoring Pat Summitt

The University of Tennessee football program announced Saturday its helmets will feature stickers honoring legendary women’s basketball coach Pat Summitt, per the Associated Press (via espnW.com). 

The sticker includes a capital ‘P’ inside a circle,” the AP explained. “The ‘P’ is based off the way Summitt wrote the letter in her actual signature.”

Chad Fields of Ace Uniform Report speculated what it could look like:

Summitt, who died June 28 from early-onset dementia at the age of 64, is considered by many to be the greatest women’s basketball coach ever. 

She coached 38 seasons at Tennessee, winning eight national championships in the process. She also holds the Division I record in both men’s and women’s basketball with 1,098 career wins. 

“We all know what she stands for,” Volunteers head football coach Butch Jones told the media Saturday, according to SEC Country’s Evan Webeck

Tennessee will debut the stickers Thursday night during its opening game of the season against Appalachian State. The Vols enter the new year as the AP’s No. 9-ranked team, the first time they’ve been in the Top 10 since 2006.
