Legendary Lady Vols basketball coach Pat Summitt was honored Sunday as she was named the "12th Titan" prior to the Tennessee Titans game against New England.
Last summer Summitt announced she has been diagnosed with early onset dementia, which leads to Alzheimer's Disease.
She's the all-time winningest coach in NCAA history for men's and women's basketball.
After 38 seasons of coaching, Summitt decided to retire after last season.
Former Tennessee men's basketball coach and friend Bruce Pearl said the diagnosis hasn't stopped Summitt.
"I'm telling you right now, she could still do it," said Pearl. "She's battled this thing head on. She loves the program and cares about the program. It's wonderful that people are here today to continue to support her and her fight."
As part of today's honor, Titans owner Bud Adams donated $25,000 to the Pat Summitt Foundation to increase awareness and find a cure for Alzheimer's Disease.
