Saturday morning before the pre-game festivities began, Acting President Granetta Blevins, H.K. Kingkade, the football team and coaches gathered to dedicate a tree in memory of Finley Ellison. Dwaine Ellison, a GC assistant football coach, and his family lost Finley, their infant son, at 105 days old to SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Sydrome). After Eric Lookadoo, Finley’s godfather, gave a touching speech, a marker was placed on a sapling by the stadium.
