Texas Tech and Kliff Kingsbury Make Awesome Gesture to The Gonsioroski Family

Earlier this month, Texas Tech walk-on quarterback Luke Gonsioroski passed away after a hard-fought battle with cancer. That didn’t stop Texas Tech from sending the family something to honor the late quarterback.

The glass case shadowbox number five jersey represents Gonsioroski’s high school number. The three no. 18 jerseys are the ones Gonsioroski would have worn while at Texas Tech.

This gesture is pretty awesome. A guy who never practiced for the team made such a big impact with his fighting spirit and tenacity inspired the football program to do something special for the family. These rare and special moments remind us that sports provides much more than entertainment; they’re about unity, growth and overcoming odds.

Luke Gonsioroski didn’t overcome his odds, but his valiant fight has inspired many others to try. Hopefully, his fighting spirit will live on in the Texas Tech football team this season.
