Honoring J.D.

Grand Valley High School and Vail Christian High School are playing a football game tonight at Eagle Valley High School in Gypsum. There will be a lot of heavy hearts tonight, since Grand Valley quarterback J.D. Guess was killed in an auto accident earlier this week. The folks at Grand Valley decided to play the game, which starts at 7 p.m. At about 6:30 p.m., there will be a ceremony to honor J.D., including a release of balloons with his No. 9 written on each one. If you have some time tonight, then head over to John Ramunno Field to show your support for a grieving family and community.
