For those of you unfamiliar with Welles Crowther and his story, I strongly suggest checking out the video above, which ESPN originally aired back in 2011.
Welles was a former B.C. lacrosse player working in the financial industry in the South Tower of the World Trade Center after graduation back on Sept. 11, 2001. Interestingly enough, he told his father that he desired to change his career to a fire fighter prior to the 9/11 attacks. Needless to say, when his building was hit, Welles sprung into action to help others and paid the ultimate sacrifice. He was last seen helping others while wearing a red bandana. The bandana had been his trademark since he was a kid, and he always sported one under his B.C. lacrosse helmet.
Boston College, who also holds an annual "Red Bandan Run" in honor of Welles, will pay homage in an additional way on Saturday with their uniforms when they host 9th-ranked USC in primetime on ESPN.
Save your blood-gang jokes. This is to honor a real man who died helping others so they could live another day. Very classy move by Boston College.
