Debra Scherle is presented with her son Conor’s football jersey by former Fairfield High School head coach Darwin Seiler prior to last Friday’s varsity game against James Buchanan. Conor Scherle died in an accident last December at the age of 21.

Debra Scherle will never forget the morning she received the news that her son was in an accident.

She was in West Palm Beach, Florida, ready to attend her stepson Danny’s wedding. Instead, in the waning morning hours on Dec. 1, her phone rang. Shortly after, three West Palm Beach police officers greeted her in the hotel lobby and gave her the news that her son was dead.
