WESTMINSTER, Colo. - The Legacy High School football team took the field Friday night just five days after a deadly bus crash at Denver International Airport took the life of the bus driver, Kari Chopper, and injured several players and coaches.
In the most talked about game this week in the state of Colorado, the football team made the decision to play their homecoming game despite three of their coaches still being badly injured, including head coach Wayne Voorhees.
"The situation has brought out the best in us,” said Clarissa Shelley, student body president.
"It was the football boys’ decision, but the whole school was backing them with whatever they chose," said Legacy High senior Josh Chamberlain.
The team got a locker room pep talk before the game from a few Denver Broncos.
