Derek Mason noted that the uniforms include 82 rivets painted on the helmet in honor of Turner Cockrell, who died of cancer in November. He wore No. 82.
“In order to realize the worth of the anchor, we need to feel the stress of the storm,” coach Derek Mason said in a promotional video released at the unveiling, per Adam Sparks of The Tennesseean. “Rivets are the strength of the ship — 82 rivets for our strength and our rock Turner Cockrell, who was always battle ready.”
