RIP Travis.

Last night we got the news that one of our local football player had passed away. He was paralyzed two years ago during a game. It was so devastating watching him on the field. Then to see how the team was by his side every step of the way. This young man was truly a inspiration to everyone he encountered. This young man had so much spirit he often went to football games and sit on the sidelines in his wheelchair and watch the games. Him and his family were selected to have a house built thru Habitat for Humanity to build a house to suit his needs. What makes that story even more amazing is how fast they built this house. The entire city along with other Rival High Schools helped build this house within a 24 hour time frame. How amazing is that?

RIP Travis...may you play on your field of dreams forever buddy!
