The Lake Erie Bulldogs Show Support After Loss
The Lake Erie Bulldogs are their brothers' keepers especially during hard times. The youth football team held a vigil in support of their teammates and coach who lost multiple members of their family in Sunday morning's daycare fire. Tyrese and Damien Jones lost their little brother and two sisters. Luther Jones, the father and coach for the team lost four of his children. The victims include La'Myhia Jones, 8; Luther Jones Jr., 6; Ava Jones, 4; and Jaydan Augustyniak, 9 months. We spoke with the Treasurer of the Lake Bulldog, Jess Tarasovitch who expressed how important it is for the teammates to be there for each other.
The team rallied outside of the daycare with balloons and gifts, while leading a prayer in support of all the families impacted by the tragedy. In addition to holding the vigil the team is going to add stickers to their helmets to honor the lives of the children who were taken too soon.
