Consider This..Special Game this Weekend

This weekend's Texas Tech game will highlight a very special group and go down in the history books.

Texas Tech vs. Kansas State will be called the Lone Survivor Game.

405 purple heart recipients will attend the game and be honored for their military service to this great country.

It will be an historic event as it will represent the single largest gathering of purple heart recipients at any NCAA college football game. I hope you'll be there to pay your respects and cheer on the red and black to victory.

Consider this:

Texas Tech officials have gone above and beyond with the theme of this game and all the events surrounding it.

Congratulations to everyone involved and thanks for helping honor the men and women who fought to give us this kind of freedom.

I hope you'll take time this weekend to call any of your loved ones that might have served and simply thank them for their service. and if you see a veteran you know or happen to meet one of our purple heart guests this weekend, let them know that even though we can never repay our debt to them, they have our respect, our admiration, and our deepest thanks.
