Both Tyler Bracken and Eric Santos were 18 years of age and had just finished up their senior seasons at Southridge High School in Oregon. Both had graduated school and were preparing for the next moves in their lives, but it was taken from them.
According to reports, the two players were in a Saturn Ion on Highway 211 when they collided with an F250 killing the passenger Eric Santos immediately.
Their teammate Zach Slail was in the car behind them and was there during the crash. He held Santos’ hand as he died, and was in the hospital with Bracken when they removed him from life support.
We please ask that you pray for the families affected by this accident. And please keep Zach Slail in your prayers, as he lost two friends and two teammates.
