How great is this? Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury, strength and conditioning coach Rusty Whitt, and the football team, along with the Texas Tech ROTC, participated in’s #22pushups challenge.

Coach Whitt, a former Special Forces Green Beret himself, led the two groups in the challenge designed to raise awareness for veteran suicide and to honor those who serve in our nation’s military.

The challenge is simple; do pushups. According to it doesn’t matter if you can do one pushup or 100, just do what you can. They’ll even take air pushups.

If you’d like to help get to their goal of 22 million pushups, here’s how it works:

  1. Video record yourself doing pushups. In the intro include your name (and the name of any organization you wish to represent), along with who you’re pushing for. Whether that be a specific service member or veteran, or just the military in general.
  2. Post the video to social media with the following hashtags “#(number of pushups)pushups for #22Kill”
  3. You can also post the video directly on’s social media pages found here.

If you’ve participated in the challenge, or plan to, be sure to share your video in the comments! We’d love to see them!
