When fans arrive to watch tonight’s football scrimmage between Roncalli and Franklin, they’ll see the usual tan and red brick post wrapped in blue ribbon with white dash lines. It will serve as a sign of respect for a summer outing that went heartbreakingly wrong.
And before the scrimmage with Franklin Community High School, the host Roncalli Rebels plan to honor the memory of two Franklin players who died in the swimming accident in June.
Jason Moran and Michael Chadbourne, who would have been seniors this year, died trying to save their friend Sarah McLevish, who would have been a junior, during the tragedy at the Big Blue River dam in Edinburgh. McLevish remains hospitalized.
