The number 2 of Luke Laufenberg, instead of being retired, will be passed down through hopefully generations of Miners who embody the fighting and competitive spirit that Luke embodied. This is REAL UTEP tradition. Wearing the number this year will be Quadraiz Wadley.

I read a really great article weeks or months ago about american college football players who just got back from WWII how it was some best explosion of talent in american college football and yet some of the most unheralded and Wendt was one of them. They actually blew the game into the second half of the century that we know today.

They tried this with #22 for basketball. It lasted one season.
There was no scholarship for Jeep. The Laufenberg scholarship campaign has been wildly successful. Its has close to 5000 donors. It ain't going away. Luke's legacy will live on forever through the scholarship. It will probably end up fully funding multiple scholarships.

#22 (Fred Wendt) should be retired. Best UTEP rb in the history of the program.
Should he not be in the college football HOF? I’ve never understood how he held a major record like single season yards and he was not voted in.
