LUBBOCK, Texas— Texas Tech Football Coach Joey McGuire said the team will use the No. 3 jersey to honor Lubbock teen Luke Siegel who passed away in August 2021.

Luke Siegel was severely injured in a golf cart accident in 2015. Luke had multiple brain surgeries and had to go through months of physical, occupational, and speech therapy. He passed away from complications of COVID-19 at the age of 15.

The No. 3 was Luke’s favorite number and the number he wore on his baseball jersey
