From Mickey Ahrens - Coach Redmond Football.
Today was one of the toughest days of my life. It was an even a tougher day for many others in my Redmond community. Last night, one of our football player’s life on earth ended. Zac Mercado was one of the sweetest, nicest boys I have ever met. He was athletic and energetic and everything good that there could be about a person. It is so heartbreaking to lose somebody like this. I am so blessed to have known him and have him be a part of my life.
Being around the players and coaches today was an amazing experience. Nobody knew what to do, or say, or how to act. But everyone just felt their feelings and cried and talked. There was so much good that took place today. I can’t even explain how grateful I am to be surrounded by the people that I was surrounded with today.
Please, love the people around you daily. Everyone around you needs your help and love. Hopefully, this can be a reminder for us all to appreciate all of the wonderful things around us, to look for the good, and focus on spreading positivity to all relationships in our lives.
