See 'KF' decal LSU football will wear to honor Kevin Faulk's daughter after tragic death


Running backs coach Kevin Faulk won't be with the LSU football program as they take on Central Michigan, but the initials "KF" will take center stage.

But those letters don't stand for the former Tigers and NFL running back, they stand for the name of his daughter Kevione Faulk, who died tragically at 19 years old earlier this week. Kevin Faulk stepped away from the program as his family mourns its loss.

The black decal with white lettering will be worn on the back of the Tigers' helmets as they take on the Chippewas, shown in an image shared by the program Saturday morning. Can't see the image below? Click here.

LSU put out a statement Monday morning to share it was "heartbroken" by the loss of Kevione, who was reportedly a student worker for the team.

"She was a part of the LSU Family, and we mourn the loss of a daughter, a sister, a friend, a classmate and a colleague. We ask that all Tigers keep the Faulks in their prayers and respect their privacy at this difficult time," read the statement.

LSU coach Ed Orgeron said earlier in the week that Kevin was with his family and has been told to "take his time." There's been no indication of when he might return to the team. LSU begins SEC play against Mississippi State next week.
