The Oklahoma Sooners will wear a helmet decal this year as a tribute to Austin Box. This offseason, Box passed away due to "mixed drug toxicity" at the age of 22. He was to be a senior this season and was in line to be the Sooners' starting middle linebacker.
Here is the decal that will adorn each Oklahoma player's helmet (via the Oklahoma Sooners' Twitter feed)
In addition to the decal, members of the Oklahoma defense will reportedly honor Box by taking turns wearing his No. 12 jersey on a game-by-game basis. A decision on who will wear Box's jersey for the Sooners' season-opening game against Tulsa on Sept. third has not yet been made.
