The weekend of festivities included gathering for lunch and dinner downtown Friday and touring MU’s facilities with Young Herd coach Jack Lengyel. On Saturday, they were honored at Marshall’s football game with East Carolina. On Sunday, they were welcomed to Norway Avenue Church of Christ for morning services and then a memorial at Spring Hill Cemetery.
