He was a football player at Mesa High School. On the eve of the season's opening game, he was accidently shot as he tried to break up a dog fight in his yard using the butt of the rifle. As the 17 year old was dying, he told his family, "Tell coach to go ahead and play the game tomorrow. Tell the boys to carry on." "Carry on" became Mesa High's rally cry.
