Senior Night Football Game

Senior Night football game was one that was super important to me. To be able to walk my son across the field was quite an event. For one young man this event became bitter sweet. Michael Drake, a senior at Stow High School, lost his father in 2005 to lymphoma. Such an ordeal for a young man to experience. When senior night came up Michael thought he would be accompanied across the field by his mother and sister for senior night. Michael was stunned when he saw Josh Cribbs. Michael's late father had given Cribbs a chance to play at Kent State and served as a father figure to him as well. So when the time came to pay it back Cribbs jumped at the chance and thought of being able to give something back to the coach he loved. Say what you want about NFL football players but I must say Josh Cribbs did a stand up deed.
