"We know Derek loved the Missouri Southern Lions and the Lions loved him," said Missouri Southern Interim President Alan Marble. "We feel this is a fitting tribute to Derek's life and work. We encourage fans to give at the game or to make a contribution to the Go Lions Elijah Moore Trust Fund."

"On the field, Derek was all about getting the job done," said MSSU Athletics Director Jared Bruggeman. "Now we want to get the job done for him. "
