Mississippi State to wear helmet sticker in memory of Joseph Jr., father

STARKVILLE, Miss. – Mississippi State Athletics will host a memorial service honoring Bulldogs Keith Joseph Jr. and his father, Keith Joseph Sr. at 12:30 p.m. Thursday in Humphrey Coliseum.

The service is open to the public.

Joseph Jr. (18) and Sr. (44) tragically died in a one-car accident on Friday. Joseph Jr. was redshirting this season as a true freshman defensive lineman. Joseph Sr. played linebacker for State from 1989-92. Both attended Pascagoula High School and were en route to watch the school’s game Friday.

The Bulldogs will wear a helmet decal honoring the Josephs with the letters “MJ.” Keith Joseph Jr. was affectionately known as “MJ” to his MSU teammates. Keith Jr. was born Marshean Joseph on July 1, 1997.

A moment of silence will be observed prior to State’s game against No. 3 Alabama at 2:30 p.m. CT Saturday in Davis Wade Stadium.

Mississippi State held a service for Joseph, and the photos were pretty moving. Head coach Dan Mullen spoke on Joseph's behalf. Check them out:
