In memory and tribute of Ty Jordan, his football number was painted on the University of Utah's Spence and Cleone Football Practice Center field.

In a tweet, an expression of gratitude for the sentiment was shared with photos by Utah Football that stated:

Thank you to our amazing field and grounds crew for painting this 22 on the grass in front of our facility. The love everyone has shown during this time has certainly been felt.

Jordan, 19, a star freshman running back for the Utes, died at a Dallas-area hospital after accidently shooting himself on Christmas day, authorities said Sunday.

University officials announced Jordan's death Saturday, a day after he was named Pac-12's newcomer of the year, but did not release details.
