South Carolina will honor Charleston shooting victims

South Carolina’s football team will honor the memory of the Charleston shooting victims this season.

The Gamecocks will wear a helmet sticker in memory of nine victims, according to the Charleston Post and Courier’s David Caraviello. Here’s what it will look like:

The murder of nine members of the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal church in Charleston, S.C., in June sent shockwaves throughout the state and the entire nation. It sparked debates about gun laws, race relations and the termination of the Confederate Flag.

Several SEC coaches spoke out against the Confederate Flag and what it stood for, and one of those was Steve Spurrier. The Head Ball Coach is still raising awareness for the tragedy, as the Gamecocks will wear a commemorative sticker on their helmets this season to honor the nine lives lost on that gloomy June 17 night.
