The Arizona State Sun Devils don’t have to look far to find inspiration before each home game.
On Wednesday, the ASU equipment staff tweeted a photo of the entrance to the football field from the Sun Devils locker room and tunnel. The entrance has a life-size photo of former ASU Sun Devil Pat Tillman walking onto the gridiron to make it look like the late Army Ranger is leading the squad onto the field.
Tillman, who was selected by the Arizona Cardinals in the 1998 NFL draft, turned down a contract offer of $3.6 million over three years after the 2001 season to enlist in the Army in 2002. He was killed in Afghanistan in 2004.
Check out photos of “Tillman Tunnel” below.
