His tragic death has left the community in shock and mourning.
Across town team Franklin, before taking on a top team from Erie, wanted to pay tribute to their fellow community athlete and young student. Sad day in Venango County.
I have thouht about him many times over the last 38 years. I thought a great deal about him yesterday and today. And I thought a great deal about Nathan and his family. And the other two young people in the accident. Incredibly sad days for our community. It is hard enough losing a life long old friend, but losing a person before they have grown up is truly a tragedy, but thinking about my old friend who died in high school, I know his lif had meaning that will stay with us for a very long time.
The Franklin Knights went on to avenge and earlier season loss to Mercyhurst Prep with a 5-4 victory at home. Franklin's Luke Guth was pretty solid from the mount. "Luke's pretty strong today," said his catcher Cole Harmon after the first inning.
