Bad news never has good timing, but with this being the holiday season these two stories are even more gut wrenching.
In the past few days there have been two horrific tragedies in our state that have claimed the life of three young athletes.
Two football players at Andrew Jackson High School were in a single car crash Monday afternoon. Justin Brewer, who was 17 and Derrick Peach, who was 16, both died because of the injuries suffered in the accident.
Also, Charleston Southern baseball Will Bedenbaugh was killed in a single car accident near his hometown of Prosperity Saturday night. Bedenbaugh was a sophomore pitcher and catcher on the Bucs team. Since 2005m four athletes from Charleston Southern have died under tragic circumstances.
Our thoughts and deepest sympathies go out to the families of these young men. To the parents that will have to spend Christmas without their son.
