Photo: Arizona Is Wearing Helmet Decals To Honor The Late Zach Hemmila

Arizona is honoring the late Zach Hemmila on Saturday night with two helmet stickers.

This past August, Arizona's Zach Hemmila tragically passed away in his sleep at the age of 22. Hemmila, a fifth-year senior, was set to be the team's starting center. Saturday, the program will be wearing two helmet decals in his honor. One features his initials, the other features his number. It's clear that he had a huge impact on the Wildcats' program.

According to SB Nation, Hemmila's cause of death is still unknown.

Props to Arizona for finding a great way to honor their former player. The Wildcats take on BYU at 10:30 p.m. ET.
