Shunick to be remembered on ULL helmets

Lafayette, LA (KPLC) - Murder victim Mickey Shunick will be memorialized at every University of Louisiana at Lafayette football game this season.

The players will wear a special decal on the back of their helmets honoring Shunick.

The ULL student disappeared in May. Her remains were found earlier this month in rural Evangeline Parish.

"If we can show just one-tenth of the amount of courage she has shown, hopefully, we'll have a chance to be successful. It might be a little reminder to our guys when things are going tough and we're faced with tough challenges throughout this season, it's nothing Mickey has not gone through. Not even close to what she has done," said ULL head football coach Mark Hudspeth.
