Some of the greatest players to ever don the Red and Black might now have the chance to be forever having their names etched into Texas Tech history at Jones AT&T Stadium.
On Thursday, Texas Tech Athletics announced the creation of the Texas Tech Football Ring of Honor.
"The Ring of Honor will be a tremendous addition to the legacy and heritage of Red Raider Football," Athletic Director Kirby Hocutt said in a news release on Thursday. "The careers of those that we will celebrate in this Ring of Honor brought national recognition to this university and left an incredible mark on our football program. Their names will become a permanent fixture inside Jones AT&T Stadium so that all who enter will be reminded of their outstanding contributions to Texas Tech University."
The newly formed ring of honor will be placed on the West Side of Jones AT&T Stadium.
It will be an anonymous committee that will choose the candidates for the ring of honor, following their recommendation it will come down to the Athletic Director to make the final decision.
Tech will announce the first class for the Ring of Honor on July 5th, and the individuals chosen will be inducted at an official enshrinement ceremony on August 31st, and the names will be unveiled at the Red Raiders first home football game on September 1st, when Tech faces Northwestern State.
