Congrats to College Football Hall of Fame member Gabe Rivera, who will be inducted to the Texas Tech Ring of Honor in 2014 on September 13th at halftime in the game against the Arkansas Razorbacks:

"I never saw myself as a legend," Rivera said. "This is an incredible honor for my family and we are all very excited and grateful to Texas Tech for this recognition."

And from Athletic Director Kirby Hocutt:

"Gabe Rivera has had a tremendous impact on our football program and his legacy at Texas Tech will be forever," Director of Athletics Kirby Hocutt said. "Induction into the Ring of Honor is reserved for the best of the best and Gabe's spectacular career at Texas Tech is worthy of our continued celebration."

Rivera dominated games at defensive tackle and he had one of the most spectacular college careers that you could imagine.  Congrats to Gabe!
