Arizona State has officially unveiled its newly-remodeled stadium entrance tunnel. Termed the Tillman Tunnel, it now features massive pitchforks on both walls surrounded by splashes of maroon and gold.

The doorway features the tunnel’s namesake, Pat Tillman. An American hero, Tillman turned his back on football and the NFL to serve his country. The College Football Hall of Famer was killed during a tour of duty in Afghanistan.

This move by ASU is a great way to commemorate Tillman and his courage.
