CONWAY, S.C. (WMBF) – The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers will pay tribute to Myrtle Beach police officer Jacob Hancher during Wednesday night’s game against the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns.

A tweet from offense and special teams coach Joshua Caraway shows the sticker the team will wear on its helmets. It’s in the shape of a police badge and reads “PFC J. Hancher EOW 10-3-20.”

“Thank y’all for protecting our community and putting your lives on the line for us,” the tweet stated.

Hancher was killed in the line of duty while responding to a domestic call in the area of 14th Avenue South on Oct. 3.
