Those who have made their mark on Red Raider Football will be honored in a new fashion.

Texas Tech Athletics has announced the new Texas Tech Football Ring of Honor, which will consist of an elite group of players and coaches that made outstanding contributions to Red Raider football.

Inductees will have their names permanently added to the west stadium building facing the playing surface inside Jones AT&T Stadium.

Candidates for the Ring of Honor will be chosen and screened by an anonymous selection committee, according to a press release from the University. Once the group makes a candidate selection, the group will make a formal recommendation to the director of athletics.

“The Ring of Honor will be a tremendous addition to the legacy and heritage of Red Raider Football,” said Kirby Hocutt, director of athletics. “The careers of those that will celebrate in this Ring of Honor brought national recognition to this university and left an incredible mark on our football program.”

The first inductees into the Ring of Honor will be unveiled on Thursday, July 5th.
