Caige Ryder a seventeen year old star senior football player for Cabell Midland tragically lost his life last Thursday when he was struck and killed by a Jeep on Interstate 64 near his high school.

His coaching staff and team had a decision to make and boy did they make the right now. They went out played with heavy hearts the next night after losing their star player, and they whooped Riverside 42-14.

There were so many fans in the stands wearing his jersey number to honor him and his family.

According to Cabell County Sheriff Chuck Zerkle, Rider was involved in an altercation at the school Thursday, which prompted his mother to pick him up. Rider got out of his mother’s vehicle, ran toward the back side of the campus, across the football field, and onto the interstate where he was tragically hit by a passing vehicle.

Rider was pronounced dead at the hospital a short time later.
