I see this 'remembrance' helmet sticker as a real positive way to pay
tribute to Gaius and remind and or teach the Ute players the eternal value and
reality of life. It lives on but is always precious. Whittingham is the right
coach to install this concept yet move on to football at the same time.
A very cool, touching tribute to an obviously good young man.
What a fitting tribute to a fine young man. The entire team will carry their
thoughts of their young friend and respected teammate throughout the season.
I will never forget the Utes' memorial to another friend they
lost Joseph B. Worthlin (JWB) the week of the Sugar Bowl in 2009.
A nice and appropriate tribute. A class move by Whit and the Utes.
@max was right - can't you leave the classless comments alone for an
article like this?Nice touch to remember a fine young man. Wish we
didn't have this topic for discussion but unfortunately we do.
Utah is the one of the classiest organizations in football. whittingham employs
the perfect balance of stressing the importance of being good people, while
trying to win football games.He has handled this tough situation
with complete respect and classProud to be Ute!
What Max? I am not saying Whit or any other Ute decision maker had
some unheard of revelation or anything. I am just saying that I think Whit is
handling this tragedy well and can reach players that are cut from a different
cloth with life lessons outside of football. The sticker and other
tributes (a multitude of varieties) are seen elsewhere as well (of course they
are). But the 'eternal soldier' adaptation and attitude on the hill
towards Gaius is seen by me as highly appropriate. Am I a Ute fan thinking
inductively? Perhaps some, but I am not shy to say good for the Utes and coach
Thanks Dahl for the design. You do great work! A very nice and fitting
