Michigan and Michigan State have both been active in honoring the Oxford community following the tragedy. The Wolverines honored the victims in a memorable and iconic 42-point performance – Myre’s jersey number – in their B1G Championship Game victory.
Mel Tucker and the Spartans also honored Myre as an honorary member of the 2022 recruiting class.
“Tate Myre had an unmatched work ethic, athleticism, and love for his teammates. He had a passion to one day play for Michigan State. This passion was paired with an unstoppable drive and follow-through to get there. Tate’s consistency on and off the football field elevated everyone who knew him,” said Tucker.
Myre was indeed a 5-star human being in every way.
