Background: This workout is dedicated to Trooper Moises Sanchez who passed away from complications of gunshot wounds on August 24, 2019.

Trooper Sanchez was transported to a local hospital with serious injuries. He succumbed to complications of his wounds on August 24th, 2019, following surgery. The suspect was arrested following a manhunt. He was charged with capital murder after Trooper Sanchez passed away.
He had served with the Texas Highway Patrol for four years. He is survived by his wife and three children. In October 2019, the corner where he was shot was renamed Trooper Moises Sanchez Blvd.
The workout was designed by Texas State Police Officer Bobby Flores, CF-L1. He personally assisted with the manhunt during the incident.
