Texas A&M’s varsity athletic teams will wear tribute helmet decals or uniform patches to honor the memory of George H.W. Bush, the 41st President of the United States and a great friend to Texas A&M’s Department of Athletics.
The tribute patch artwork is representative of the shield element from the official President Bush 41 logo. Additionally, as approved by the Bush family, the patch will incorporate Texas A&M University’s official colors of maroon and white to celebrate President Bush’s life and service while expressing the 12th Man’s love for him.
The Texas A&M football team will wear the design as a helmet decal for its appearance in the TaxSlayer.com Gator Bowl on Dec. 31, while both Aggie basketball teams will begin wearing the uniform patches after Thursday’s interment services. Eventually, all Texas A&M athletic squads will wear a tribute uniform patch for the remainder of the 2018-19 school year.
