In memory of Nate Ruffin

Here is hoping Nate Ruffin's number 25 is retired and he is enrished in the Marshall Hall of Fame. He is and always will be a true hero and role model.

The ground you're walking on was paved by many black men and many white men," "I was left behind so I could tell the story for those men who are not around now. As long as I live, I shall tell the story. As long as we tell the story, they shall live."

I attended East Carolina and was at the game between Marshall and East Carolina in Greenville, North Carolina. I still remember the feelings of hearing the next morning of the tragic crash of the plane. My heart goes out to all the families who were touched by this event.

I went to see the movie after my high school class...I am a journalism teacher at an all- girls high school...but a big fan of college football...I look forward to Saturdays...luckily I was alone at the theatre so I was not ashamed to cry...which I did a lot of... what a beautiful movie and tribute to Marshall and the folks of Huntington for their sharing of grief and triumph...God bless those young heroes,coaches and fans.
