Rice Football mourns the passing of our Honorary Owl, Fre'derick "Ziggy" Stoval-Redd, who passed away on June 1.

Ziggy signed with the Owls in 2015 as part of TEAM IMPACT which pairs Division 1 athletic teams with children battling life-threatening illnesses and over his three years as an Owl, we celebrated his visits with us and positive turns in his treatments and stood strong with him in his times of need.

His indomitable spirit and radiant smile were a constant source of inspiration for everyone associated with Rice Football, no matter if it was during his visits to practice or our visits to him during his treatments. While we always came to offer him support and encouragement, we left each encounter with our spirits lifted.

He was a special young man and we all cherish our time together.

RIP Ziggy.
