Twelfth Man Statue located in front of Kyle Field. A gift of the Class of '80, this statue portrays E. King Gill a Texas A & M football player. In 1922 during a post-season game Gill was called from the stands to help the football team, which was losing players due to injuries. Although he never entered the game, by the time it was over he was the only player standing along the sidelines. Since then Aggies have stood at football games to symbolize their unity with the team as its"Twelfth Man".
