LARAMIE, Wyo. -
The University of Wyoming Football team will honor teammate Ruben Narcisse, who died in a car accident early on the morning of Sept. 6, by wearing a decal with his initials "RN" on their helmets. Those decals will have a black background with his initials in white, and will be evident this Saturday when the Cowboys travel to Austin, Texas, to play the University of Texas Longhorns.
Teammates of Narcisse have also requested that they be able to wear his #12 jersey during upcoming games. For this Saturday's game at Texas, sophomore strong safety Shamiel Gary will wear Narcisse's #12 jersey. The following week, when Wyoming hosts Boise State on Sept. 18, junior linebacker Brian Hendricks will wear #12, and on Sept. 25 in the Wyoming-Air Force game senior free safety Chris Prosinski will don the #12 jersey of Narcisse.
