JONESBOROUGH, Tenn. (WVLT) – During a pre-game performance at David Crockett High School Friday night, a skydiver was injured and died, according to Washington County Schools Superintendent Jerry Boyd.
The game was set to start at 7 p.m. between David Crockett and Daniel Boone for the Musket Bowl, an annual Washington Co. rivalry game, but was delayed following the incident.
School and district administrators made the decision to proceed with the football game, according to Boyd.
“Our deepest sympathies go out to the family of the injured skydiver that has passed away,” Boyd said. “We ask that everyone keep the family in their thoughts and prayers as they deal with the loss of a beloved husband, father, and grandfather.”
Boyd said that more mental health support professionals will be at both high schools on Monday, Oct. 24 to help both students and staff in need.
