In the late 1980s, Vada Murray, a safety for the Michigan Wolverines, wore number 27 under the coaching of the legendary Bo Schembechler. Sadly, Vada lost his two-year battle with cancer in 2011. In honor of her father, Nebraska Volleyball’s Harper Murray wears the number 27 and even has a tattoo of the number on her finger. Every time Harper steps onto the court, it's a heartfelt tribute to her beloved father.
