Remembering Ruben Narcisse

Today marks the one year anniversary of the day Wyoming linebacker Ruben Narcisse passed away in a one car accident on highway 287. It was the morning of Labor Day just two days after Narcisse helped Wyoming celebrate their season opening victory over Southern Utah. He was a passenger in a truck with three other teammates who went to visit friends in Colorado. On their way back the driver fell asleep and the vehicle drifted off the road. That accident at 5:27 a.m. sent shock waves that would effect his family living thousands of miles away in Miami, FL and his teammates in Laramie. His locker has laid untouched since the accident and will stay that way until the class he entered with graduates in 2015. His teammates wore his initials on their helmets all year long in 2011. Each week one individual was allowed to wear the the #12 jersey to honor Narcisse and nearly every time that player had a season best performance as they played for his memory. From this point forward DE Sonny Puletasi will wear the #12 jersey ever game to honor Narcisse who was his roommate when they both first moved to Laramie.
