DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Before kick-off, rivalries were put aside as both the Kimball High School and Carter High School football teams paid tribute to three Kimball players killed in a violent crash.
The players, Trey Woodberry, Desedric Johnson, and Kentron Haskin, died in a car accident a week ago.
The former players’ mothers held their sons’ jerseys and lead the team onto the field Saturday night.
Every player wore a black wrist band in honor of their three fallen teammates.
Trey Woodberry’s mother, Rhonda, said Saturday night did take away any of the pain but it helped.
“Our three kids didn’t die just to die,” she said. “They left a mark on the world. You can see it here tonight. We just proud of our sons.”
The three Kimball football players were three of six people killed in a single car crash Sunday evening in Oak Cliff.
Earlier Saturday funeral services were held for the other three , Jonathan Lang, Quatia Ervin, and Kennisha Bradford.
