Carson Collins had a bright future and it was cut short over the summer when an escaped inmate killed him.
Carson was one of the five members of the Collins family who were killed by an escaped inmate in June. Mark Collins, 66, along with 18-year-old Waylon Collins, 16-year-old Carson Collins, 11-year-old Hudson Collins, and 11-year-old Bryson Collins were killed at a cabin next to the family ranch in Centerville.
On Friday, his #5 jersey was presented to his parents with players and fans wearing ‘Collins Strong’ bracelets as well.
Gonzalo Lopez escaped back in May after attacking a corrections officer and hijacking a prison bus in Leon County while being transported between prisons.
On June 2, authorities said Lopez killed the Collins family and stole their truck before making his way to a rural area near San Antonio. Lopez was then killed in a shootout.
The Tomball Cougars honored the parents for their loss. It is such a sad situation.
