Texas Tech Students Wrap Will Rogers Statue in Black

KCBD NewsChannel 11 Lubbock

Students at Texas Tech University have wrapped the famous Will Rogers statue all in black to mourn the death of a police officer who was shot and killed on campus this week.

KCBD reports the group who wraps the statue before each home game is named the Texas Tech Saddle Tramps. They usually wrap the statue in red but in the past when the campus loses a member of the community it is wrapped in black.

The statue has been wrapped in black to mourn the loss of Coach Spike Dykes, after the Oklahoma Crash, and after 9-11. The Tech students also wrapped the statue with a blue ribbon to support members of law enforcement who have given all to protect the community’s they serve.

48-year-old Officer Floyd East was shot an killed in the line of duty Monday evening on the Texas Tech Campus.
