Tennessee marching band pays tribute to legendary coach Pat Summitt

KNOXVILLE, Tenn.– The Tennesse marching band honored the late Pat Summit during its halftime show on Saturday.

Summitt, who lead the Lady Vols basketball team to eight national championships, passed away on June 28 at the age 64. She stepped down after 38 seasons in 2012 after announcing she had “Alzheimer’s type” dementia.

The Pride of the Southland Marching Band formed the name “Pat” and the letter “P,” modeled after the coaching legend’s signature, as they played the “Tennessee Waltz.”

The football team also wore stickers on their helmets in tribute to the most winningest coach in Division I basketball history.

Summitt’s legacy lives on with the Pat Summitt Foundation, which awards grants to Alzheimer’s research, education and support.

The Volunteers beat the Ohio University Bobcats, 28-19.
