The newly-renovated boy's locker room at HHS was dedicated to the memory of Senior Airman Mark Forester Tuesday night during half-time of the Lions' season opener at Belgreen.
|Robbie Farris, showing the name tag, was high point scorer with 33 points.|
Ray and Pat Forester, his parents, were presented a framed jersey with the number "10" and a memorial patch across the shoulder. Mark, an Air Force combat controller killed in combat Afghanistan September 29 and an HHS 1999 graduate, played basketball for HHS.
A picture of Mark and the memorial plaque will hang in the dressing room.
For the game against Belgreen, the 2010 HHS Lions wore a camouflage name tag with his name. This year, the HHS Lions boys will donate $1 for every point scored in their home games to the Wounded Warrior Foundation in Mark's name. The donations started Tuesday night game as the Lions beat the Belgreen Bulldogs, 53-50.
