Jessica, a Parkview student who also sings in praise team at church, sang the national anthem.
Of course, the team had dedicated their season to the memory of Samuel Wimberly who passed away in February. He would have been a starter on the offensive line. 2 articles that were published that week:
- Parkview Baptist offensive line comes together
- Samuel Wimberly still guides Parkview Baptist 'Band of Brothers'
We sat by some of our church friends so it helped to keep the girls entertained.
Some of us wore the spirit shirt that they made in memory of Samuel. As you can tell, Luke & Cameron actually watched the game.
Parkview won and kept their undefeated record.
After they shook hands with the other team, one of Samuel's best friends held up the jersey to the crowd and then the team gathered around it.
Gathered around the trophy
Our #56 in honor of Samuel
