JEFFERSON COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -
Clay-Chakville football players came together Friday night to remember a teammate.
Junior linebacker Mekail Evans collapsed earlier this week and died.
Mekail Evans is described as a well-loved student, great football player and a respectful, well behaved young man.
"Me and Mekail have played basketball together since the 7th grade and he just pushed me and made me a better player because he was a great competitor and he just made me better all around at the game," Terelle West, a friend of Mekail's, said.
"We went up and down the entire day, terribly sad, later in the afternoon we heard some good stories and Mekail and some smiles and became fond memories, so we're just here to support the kids and support Mekail's family," Clay-Chalkville football coach Jerry Hood said.
The football program tweeted Thursday that a memorial fund has been set up at Regions Bank to help the family with expenses during this difficult time. Supporters can donate through any Regions Bank.
The vigil was held at the Clay-Chalkville football field. FOX6 News will cover the vigil and have full reports at 9 and 10 p.m.
