A memorial service will be held to honor linebacker Ruben Narcisse on the Wyoming campus Monday afternoon. Narcisse died in a car accident on Monday and three teammates were injured in the wreck as they drove home from Fort Collins, Colo. The service is open to the public.
Wyoming has done its best to maintain normalcy and routine this week as it deals with the tragedy. Coach Dave Christensen said the team will wear decals (see right) with Narcisse's initials on their helmets for the rest of the season, and players will rotate wearing his No. 12 in honor of him. Sophomore strong safety Shamiel Gary will wear the decal first. The team has also kept his locker the way he left it and will keep it that way for the next four years.
The Cowboys travel to play Texas on Saturday.
The Ruben Narcisse Memorial Fund has also been established. All donations will go to the Narcisse family to help defray funeral and other costs associated with his death. Send donations to:
