Youth football players killed in accident

Very sad story in today's ABJ about two Ellet Youth Football players and the Father of one of the boys being killed in an accident Saturday night:

Quote:
SPRINGFIELD TWP: Just hours before two 12-year-olds and one of their fathers died in a crash Saturday night, the Akron boys played football together.

Luke Caplinger and Ryland Reel were best friends who palled around at Hyre Middle School, where they would have started seventh grade next week.

''They had wonderful things ahead of them,'' said Cynthia Wilhite, Hyre's principal. ''We are deeply saddened by this loss. The Greater Akron community will embrace the family and try to get them through this.''

Wilhite said counseling will be provided to the boys' 22 Ellet football teammates, who are scheduled to practice this evening.

Prayers and best wishes from my family to the family and friends of Luke Caplinger and Ryland Reel, the Ellet football team, and the entire Greater Akron community.

May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
