Dakota Kimbrough, a Broadwater High School who passed away last week in a car accident, was remembered on Friday night as football teams across Montana competed for the first time since his death.
The 18-year-old high school student and football player died in a vehicle accident on Ray Creek Road on Friday, September 20th, just hours before the Bulldogs' homecoming football game was to be played.
His death has had an impact not only on the entire community, but on all of Montana.
Broadwater School Superintendent Andrea Johnson said, "Whether it be the team that you played a few weeks ago, whether it be Florence or Fairfield or Three Forks or White Sulphur, everybody from across the state feels it when a youth dies. And especially somebody like Dakota who had charisma and a zest for life."
That sentiment was shown on Friday night; Melanie Racine in Cut Bank shared the photo seen below and said: "The Cut Bank High School cheerleaders made this and hung it at our field tonight. We're thinking of Townsend."
The Townsend Bulldogs won their game against Manhattan on Friday night with a score of 20-6.
