A teammate of Oklahoma sophomore center Austin Woods, who last week was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma and this week began chemotherapy, has ordered a series of “Beat Cancer” tank tops.

The tank tops, designed by guard Gabe Ikard, have “Beat Cancer” on the front and Woods’ No. 50 on the back.

Woods, OU’s deep snapper on field goals and extra points last season, found out he had a stage 3 level of the cancer on Thursday. Stage 4 is the most severe level of Hodgkin's.

Woods, a native of Rockwall, Texas, began chemo treatments Monday at the OU Stephenson Cancer Center. "Fighters mentality. Round 1..." Woods tweeted in the morning.

To buy a Woods beat cancer tank top, go to the website and enter the keyword “WBCT12OU.” The tank tops will be available for purchase through Sunday.
