The University of Houston football team wore special helmet decals during their November 18th game with Oklahoma State as a remembrance to three former football players whose lives were tragically cut short during a car crash in downtown Houston.

The incident occurred during the early hours of Saturday, November 13, 2023 when the driver of a Chrysler 300 traveling eastbound on Pierce Road ran a red light with a high rate of speed, causing a collision with an Acura traveling south on Fannin Street. Four people were pronounced dead at the scene and four others were transported to a hospital, where, unfortunately, two more were pronounced dead within hours of arriving.

Among the fatalities, two were former University of Houston football players Zachary McMillan and Ralph Oragwu. The driver of the Chrysler, as well as a homeless man, were among those who were also killed.

The University of Houston extended its deepest condolences to the families, friends, and loved ones of those who perished. As a commemoration for their lives, the football team applied a commemorative decal depicting a red awareness ribbon with each of the former players’ initials. “Forever Coog” was written at the top of the ribbon.
