Illinois State players will wear a commemorative decal on their helmet in the FCS championship game against North Dakota State.
The helmet sticker — red with a white 65 — will honor John Rodgers, father of Eastern Washington senior All-America offensive tackle Jake Rodgers. The elder Rodgers had a heart attack in the stands during the FCS quarterfinal game between ISU and EWU on Dec. 13. He passed away on Dec. 27.
“On behalf of the entire Eastern Washington University family and our football program, our thoughts, hearts and prayers go out to Jake Rodgers and his family during this very tough time,” EWU coach Beau Baldwin said.
“Jake, his family and the memory of John have become a huge part of the Eagle football family these past two years, and we will reach out to help in any way possible now and in the future. We will be there for them.”
