The University of Louisiana Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns football team will honor Mickey Shunick during their 2012 season. Team members will wear a decal on their helmets portraying a girl on her bicycle with the name "Mickey" below. A football staff member proposed the idea, and head coach Mark Hudspeth approved.
Shunick was a UL student at the time of her death. She was kidnapped while riding her bicycle in Lafayette, and was then killed in the early morning hours of May 19. Brandon Scott Lavergne plead guilty August 17 to Shunick's murder, and the murder of Lisa Ann Pate in 1999. He is currently serving a life sentence without the possibilty of parole at Louisiana State Penitentiary in Angola.
