Local football players showing support for family of Drew Swank

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - Central Valley High School football players and their parents are actively supporting the Swank family after Valley Christian football player Drew Swank lost his life to injuries caused at a football game last week.

Before Central Valley kicked off the game against North Central Friday night, players on the Central Valley football team ran out on to the field carrying a giant flag showing the number 15. 15 was the number on Drew Swank's football jersey when he played for the Valley Christian football team.

CV players and their parents are raising money to help pay for medical bills piling up for the Swank Family. Parents armed with donation buckets received generous donations from hundreds of football fans at the game.

Drew Swank's teammates and their coach were invited to the game and said they were very grateful the community is coming together to support such a worthy cause.

If you want to donate to Drew's family to help support the cost of medical and funeral bills, there is a fund set up at Spokane Teachers Credit Union, under Drew's name.
