HANOVER COUNTY, Va. — A football scrimmage between Lee-Davis High and Douglas Freeman High Thursday night started with a moment of silence for a fallen student.
Former Douglas Freeman football player Frank Woolwine Jr., was remembered by both teams at the Lee-Davis football field in Hanover County.
Before the scrimmage, the two teams took a knee in the middle of the field and held a moment of silence in honor of the 16-year-old.
Frank was killed when his car ran off the road and hit a tree on Westham Parkway, just north of Pinetree Road in Henrico County’s West End.
The accident was less than two weeks ago on August 6.
Just months ago, Lee-Davis High also lost a football player in a Hanover County crash.
Dylan Ballard, 17, along with Lee-Davis graduate, Elliott Hinton, were killed in a single-vehicle accident on April 23.
Police believe alcohol was a factor in both accidents.
