A touching tribute

Just a quick note to let you know that safety Kyle Theret will be wearing No. 14 today in tribute to Damien White.

 

White was the wide receiver out of California who signed with the Gophers in February of 2007 but left the program last year. White was shot and killed in Los Angeles this spring.
