Watertown Red & Black helmets honor Tyler Christman
WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) - The Watertown Red & Black will remember Tyler Christman.
The football team will wear stickers on the back of their helmets, showing Tyler’s name as well as his football number.
The 14-year-old Carthage junior varsity football player passed away Tuesday after suffering a severe brain injury during a game last weekend.
Red & Black coach and Carthage native George Ashcraft knows this is a great way to remember the teen player.
“I will make sure that is being announced when we step onto the field. I do the pre-game prayer and we will dedicate these next two games up to the championship in memory of him,” he said.
See the tribute at the Red & Black’s next game October 2.
