Pat Tillman is still leading the Sun Devils on the field


Nine years after his passing, Pat Tillman is still leading the Arizona State football team. 

As the Sun Devils travel through the tunnel to the field at Sun Devil Stadium for tonight's season-opener against Sacramento State, each player will pass through a transparent screen bearing Tillman's likeness from his days as a Sun Devil from 1994-97.

If you're a player and you're not prepared to leave it all on the field after seeing that, you probably shouldn't be playing for Arizona State.

Update: On top of that, Arizona State players will also see Tillman video at the top of the tunnel. Thanks again to the Sun Devils' equipment room for the photo.
