Austin Box To Be Remembered Throughout The 2011 Season

This is something that Jordan and I discussed as a possibility on Sooner Nation Sunday night and Travis Lewis has confirmed that it will happen. According to a statement made by Lewis on ESPN's "Training Days with the Oklahoma Sooners" that aired Tuesday night, a different player will wear a #12 jersey throughout the season in memory of Austin Box

I think that this will be both a touching tribute and an honoring gesture towards Box who would have been the starting middle linebacker with this season being his senior year. Now it begs the question as to whether quarterback Landry Jones will keep his #12 jersey this season or not?
