In 1987, the Warrior Football program tragically lost two teammates, Brett Traviola and Chris Jordan, in separate automobile accidents. Shortly after, the team planted a bush with a plaque to serve as a Memorial and a tribute to those two lives lost too soon.
With the renovation of Warrior Field this summer, the original Memorial had to be removed. On Friday, September 22, prior to the Homecoming game against Plymouth, the Wawasee Athletic Department will dedicate a new Memorial for Brett and Chris. The new Memorial is located in the northeast corner of Warrior Field (near the flag pole).
We would like to invite all members of the 1986 team, as well as anyone who knew these young men, to attend the game as we unveil the new Memorial. The Dedication will take place at 6:45 pm.
