ST. CLAIR COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

The Moody community is in mourning after losing one of their students to a car wreck.

State troopers say Jonathan Harris, 16, was badly injured when his 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee left Roberts Mill Pond Road and struck a tree.

He passed away from his injuries in the evening of Monday, August 18.

On Tuesday, the flag was flown at half staff at Moody High School to honor Harris.

"Most people knew hime because he didn't allow you any other option to get to know him, pretty outgoing individual, little mischevious, but likeable, you know," Assistant Principal Tommy Smitherman said.

Harris was on the football and wrestling teams at Moody High School.

"It's going to be hard for us to go out Friday to know that he was once part of our team, well, he's still part of our cause he's in a special place now. He has a big part in our hearts, in that he's going to bring great memories to this team, just going to play for him this Friday," player Rodrellas Garner said.

The team plans to honor Harris at Friday's game by wearing his favorite color, pink. Garner hopes the whole school will participate.

Through the pain, Garner said Harris' death has taught him a powerful lesson.

"It taught me that I should live life to the fullest while I'm young, because you never when my last day is, just like he didn't plan for it to be his last day," said Garner.
