Groveton, Northwestern State Football Star Dies in Plane Crash
There is heartbreaking news out of Louisiana on this Thursday evening. Wade Williams, who was an all-state football star at Groveton High School, and eventually an All Southland Conference player at Northwestern State in Natchitoches, passed away today in a plane crash near Monroe.
According to news reports, 3 people perished in the crash. Businessman Chris Mudd and the pilot, Robert Gilliam, were the only other persons aboard the plane.
I did not know Wade, but I was fortunate enough to meet him at a KICKS Road Show at a Lufkin car dealership. In just that short conversation, it was easy to see that Wade Williams loved life, loved his friends and family, and loved Jesus.
Please pray for all affected by this terrible tragedy.
