Lions to honor Oxford shooting victims, wear Color Rush uniforms on Sunday

This week’s school shooting in Oxford, Michigan was close to the home of the Detroit Lions’ family, and they will honor the victims on Sunday.

This week’s shooting was at a high school in Oxford, Michigan, about 40 miles from Detroit, close to the home of the Detroit Lions. Via Dave Birkett from Detroit Free PressHead coach Dan Campbell spoke about what the team is doing to honor the victims of the tragedy that left four dead and seven injured.

“As a starting point, we’ll have shirts, we’ve made hats, we’ll put badges on the back of the helmets,” Lions coach Dan Campbell said. “We will have a minute of silence before the game for sure, but these guys are on our mind. And so we want to represent them on Sunday. I know there will be a group of students, children and affected people who will be watching this game. For now, this is the best way to help them.”

Here’s a look at the helmet label the Lions will wear on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.

It’s not nearly as important as a helmet sticker or a moment of silence recognizing the tragedy at Oxford, but the Lions will also wear their silver Rush on Sunday.

Tate Mer was one of the Oxford students killed in the shooting, who also happened to be a football player. He is hailed as a hero who faced the shooter, certainly saving some lives in the process. A scholarship fund has been launched in his honor, details of which are below, following Kyle Brandt’s segment on Friday’s edition of “Good Morning Football” in honor of Meyer.
