LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The camouflage jerseys the Red Raiders wore on the field Saturday against the Missouri Tigers are now on the auction block.
The uniforms are part of the Wounded Warrior Project, which supports soldiers who have been injured overseas. Each player's jersey had "Freedom" written on it instead of their names.
Captain Chad Fleming lost a leg after being shot in Iraq. He and two other wounded warriors led Coach Tommy Tuberville and the team to the Jones during the Raider Walk.
"You'd be surprised how big of a morale booster that is coming from a wounded situation where you have nothing, everything has been stripped off you, and now a bag with pretty much everything in it that you need," said Captain Chad Fleming.
100 percent of the proceeds will go to the Wounded Warrior Project. Texas Tech is one of three NCAA schools participating this year. Last year $150,000 was raised for injured troops.
If you would like to bid on one of these jerseys, bids starts at $125 and go in $25 increments. To bid, just go to www.texastech.com for more information.
