It was in tribute of 16-year-old Kendal “Kenny” DePhillip, a Greenon  junior who was a passenger in a car that crashed Sunday afternoon on Fowler Road in Clark County. He was a member of the marching band and on the swim team.

The musical tribute happened during the football game at the Cedarville stadium, which Greenon’s varsity team won with a score of 7-6. Video above was contributed by student Mariah Gossett.

The driver of the car was a fellow Greenon student, 16-year-old Andrew Scott, who sustained non-life threatening injuries.

DePhillip was the third Greenon student to die in a crash this academic year.

A crash in August killed David Waag and Connor Williams.
