An act of love and a tribute to the victims of the Newtown, Conn. shooting tempered the longtime athletic feud between the Payson High Longhorns and Snowflake Lobos Jan. 3, 2013.
The Longhorns wore specially designed T-shirts during warmups with the words “Praying for Newtown” on the front and the names of the 26 victims on the back.
The team members also signed one of the shirts to send back to the school in Monroe, Conn. where the students of the shooting site are now enrolled.
The shirts were also sold and all proceeds will be sent to a special fund in Newtown.
