Following Mike Leach’s death, a number of football programs have been paying tribute to the Pirate. His innovation and quirky humor were beloved throughout this sport and he radically changed the way that people approach football all across the country.
And even though he only spent three seasons in Starkville, he’s had a profound impact on Mississippi State football. And so, with one last game of this season and one last hype video to be produced, the folks in the Mississippi State athletics department crafted the perfect tribute to Leach and his legacy with this tear-jerker of a video.
Narrated by Will Rogers, who is notably the last quarterback to ever get the distinction and honor of starting for Leach, this video will tug at your heart a bit. And it’ll also help you be fully prepared for the ReliaQuest Bowl.

Hail State. Let’s Raid the Air. Mike Leach forever.
