Birth: Feb. 1, 1949, USA
Death: Nov. 14, 1970
Cabell County
West Virginia, USA

David Grant DeBord from Quincy, FL, offensive tackle and a senior at Marshall University died in a plane crash. On a rainy hill side in Wayne County, West Virginia, the lives of 75 people were lost in the worst single air tragedy in NCAA sports history. Among the losses were nearly the entire Marshall University football team, coaches, flight crew, numerous fans, and supporters. The event marked a boundary by which an entire community would forever measure time... before or after "The Crash". God bless those whose lives were lost on that evening; We honor those men and women who made a mark in the hearts of a school, a community and a nation.

David was the son of Mr. & Mrs. Frank DeBord, Jr.

God bless you and the loved ones you left behind.
