Brandin Echol’s intercepted a pass during the first quarter of the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl in Jacksonville, Florida, Saturday afternoon.
You might notice something on the UK cornerback’s wrist today during the game.
Echols is honoring a fallen Marine, Thomas Paine Echols, who died in Iraq in 2006. There is no relation between the two.
@matayo_echols is wearing this today in memory of fallen Marine who died in Iraq in 2006, Thomas Paine Echols. Cool stuff. No relation just UK fans. And Brandin had an interception today. pic.twitter.com/vC2pp6FScG
