'My prayers still go out'

I was a member of the Miami University football team during that fateful year and I can still vividly remember that tragic plane crash. Although most of us never got to meet the Marshall players that died that day we all felt that we had become to know them very well after listening to exhaustive scouting reports on the Sunday before our game with Marshall that year.

Now, years later, with two boys at the same young age as what most of those boys were on the plane that day my prayers still go out to the family and friends of those young men whose lives were taken at the prime of their life.

Two very good friends of mine were deeply touched by this, as one of them lost both parents. I was too young, but not a day goes by that I do not think of them.
