Fatal injury for Hopi football player

On Monday of this week one of our Hopi High football players named Charles Youvella died two days after receiving an injury to the head during a game against Arizona Lutheran Academy. Many media networks are covering this story, including CNN and the Associated Press. To learn more about Youvella, and the circumstances surrounding his death, see also Felicia Fonseca’s article “Arizona football player dies after game injury”, and Richard Obert’s “High school football player Charles Youvella’s death came under ordinary circumstances during a playoff game.” Please keep the Youvella family in your thoughts and prayers. This has also been a difficult time for students, teachers, and staff at the Hopi High School and the Arizona Lutheran Academy.
