Morning links: Eric Weddle's children #LightTheWorld; Damian Lillard's new shoe honors Ogden

Throughout the month of December, members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have used #LightTheWorld on social media to share things they've done to promote the Christmas spirit.

On Tuesday, former University of Utah and current Baltimore Ravens star safety Eric Weddle shared on Twitter that his kids voluntarily gave some of their own money to help buy dinner for a stranger.

Weddle, who joined the LDS Church in 2004, has posted something on Twitter nearly every day this month using the hashtag.

Damian Lillard honors Ogden in new shoe

Former Weber State and current Portland Trail Blazers star guard Damian Lillard often publicly reflects on his time in Ogden with humility.

Earlier this week, his latest shoe was released, and it gives special recognition to the city where he spent his collegiate years.

As noted Tuesday a post on the Blazers' website by Casey Holdahl, inside the Dame 3, reads, "Oakland, Ogden, Oregon," representing where Lillard grew up, where he blossomed as a player in college and where he is now one of the NBA's best guards.

Arizona State sets new uniform standards after football misfires

Both locally and around the country, a great deal of excitement was generated each week during the college football season as teams would announce the uniform combination they'd be wearing for that weekend's game.

At Arizona State University, a number of the combos the Sun Devils wore received criticism for veering too far away from the school's main colors of maroon and gold. Now, the athletic department is getting involved. The Arizona Republic's Doug Haller reported Tuesday that there will be strict guidelines for uniform combos moving forward.

“Uniforms should primarily be maroon and gold," a memo sent to staff states.

Haller reported that uniform combos must be submitted to high-ranking athletic department officials, and that athletic director Ray Anderson will have final approval before they're worn in a game.
