Photo: Kent State Will Wear '54' On Side Of Helmets To Honor Jason Bitsko

Tragedy struck the Kent State football program yesterday when starting center Jason Bitsko was found dead in his apartment after he hadn't attended practice. Now, the entire Kent State football team will honor Bitsko in a very public way this season. The Golden Flashes' helmets will have a large '54', Bitsko's number, on one side of their helmets.

This is a very nice tribute by the Kent State team for their teammate. We're sure the school will do all it can to honor him this season.
