Amherst football team dedicates bench to 9-year-old who died after sledding accident


AMHERST – A special moment on Friday night during the Midview vs. Amherst game and it was all to remember one local boy who loved the game of football.

Drew Hayden, 9, passed away after a tragic sledding accident in North Ridgeville this past January.

On Friday, the Amherst football team dedicated a bench to Drew thanks to donations from the community.

Drew wore number 25 on his Amherst football jersey.

The bench was placed near the Steele High School Field House so Drew would always have a place to watch his favorite team.
