UTC football supporter Tina Harr, mother of graduate assistant coach Chris Harr, passed away early Saturday morning after a long battle with cancer.
"I told the team last night that we were playing the game today for Tina Harr and our prayers and thoughts go out to Chris and his family," said UTC coach Russ Huesman.
"Tina was a big fan of Mocs football as she was at games, came to many practices and was a longtime supporter of our program."
Chris was a four-year letter winner for the Mocs (2007-2010) after playing high school football at Notre Dame and earned first team All-Southern Conference honors as a senior in 2010.
"Chris has a heavy heart today and we are proud to have him on the coaching staff," Huesman stated.
"Chris never missed a block - ever - and was a great offensive lineman for UTC. He will make a great head coach one day."
Funeral services have not been announced.
