FREEMAN, Wash. – Just days after a fatal shooting at Freeman High School, their football team took the field under the Friday night lights.
KREM 2’s Tom Sherry visited Freeman HS Friday night for the game as the community and kids to came together and celebrated Freeman Strong.
Before the game, both the Freeman and Medical Lake teams joined hands at the 50 yard line. They also held a moment of silence to honor Sam Strahan, who was killed in the shooting, as well as the three girls who were injured.
Previously, the Clarkston at Lewiston game had won the normal Tom’s Tailgate vote, however KREM 2 decided to change locations to honor Freeman HS after the shooting.
Both Clarkston and Lewiston high schools will still receive the $222 donation from KREM2.
The Freeman community is hurting, but hopefully tonight's home game can give this town a distraction from the pain for a couple of hours. pic.twitter.com/3kDLFDQzMj— Evan Closky (@KREMEvan) September 15, 2017
