The SoBoCo Eagles homecoming game this Friday vs Warsaw will also serve as a fundraiser for the family of late Harrisburg coach Brian Simpson. Members of the Southern Boone athletic department and school district will be manning a table run by members of the baseball and cross country team just inside the ticket gate.
According to Activities Director Pat Lacy, all of the proceeds of the fundraiser will go to the Simpson family.
Simpson had been a coach and faculty member at Harrisburg High School since 2002. He was killed last week when the school bus – headed to a cross country meet – was hit head on by another vehicle.
