Football Player Loses Father Because of Domestic Violence

Domestic violence hit very close to home for a member of the Adamson High School football team who, along with his teammates, recently took a pledge to stand up to violence at home.

Head coach Josh Ragsdale had to pull a player aside during a game Thursday and tell him that his father shot his ex-girlfriend multiple times before shooting and killing himself.

"I hate that domestic violence has hit us in the mouth, but our kids are responding," said Ragsdale.

The team has supported the player after the incident and is encouraged to work even harder to stop domestic violence.
