That was not only a resolution by the household.  Mike Leach made it recognized way back that he was a giant supporter of organ donation.

In a Public Service Announcement from the sphere of Jones Stadium, you’ll be able to see Coach Leach together with his arm across the shoulders of a younger boy. That is what you could keep in mind from that PSA:

“Due to organ donors, 1000’s of males, ladies, and kids are alive at this time. Peter Griffith is one in every of them,” Mike Leach stated.

“I received my new liver simply in time, others aren’t that fortunate,” stated Peter Griffith.       

Leach continued, “I’m coach Mike Leach. Be a winner. Be a part of the Pink Raiders and register to develop into an organ and tissue donor.”       

That was in 2008.

Peter Griffith is alive at this time due to a liver transplant. His mom, Anne Griffith, praised Mike Leach in a Fb story at this time saying his reward will assist one other household, and simply in time for Christmas.        

As requested by Mike Leach, if you happen to’d prefer to be an organ donor, go to
