UL Ragin’ Cajuns football players will carry the memory of Mickey Shunick onto every field they play on during the 2012 season. The team has decided to add to its helmets a decal of a girl on her bicycle above the name “Mickey.”

According to KATC, the idea came from a football staff member, who pitched the idea to Cajuns Head Coach Mark Hudspeth for final approval. The Daily Advertiser reports that Hudspeth called it a “phenomenal idea.”

MickeySShunick, an avid cyclist, was a 21-year-old UL student when she was kidnapped while riding her bicycle the morning of May 19 and subsequently killed by Brandon Scott Lavergne, a 33-year-old registered sex offender who pleaded guilty Friday to Shunick’s death and the 1999 murder of Lisa Pate. He started a life sentence at the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola the same day he entered a guilty plea.
