Southwestern Athletic Conference Commissioner Duer Sharp tweeted a picture of the tribute to Trayvon Martin, who was fatally shot in February 2012 by George Zimmerman, notes AL.com.

Zimmerman was acquitted of the shooting this summer, but was in the news today when his estranged wife Shellie called 911.

She claimed on the 911 call that Zimmerman was sitting in a car, with a gun, outside her parents' Lake Worth, Fla. home.
