Our hearts at SSI goes out to the Sloan community as Westwood schools tragically lost one of their own student athletes Kage McDonald a 12-year old junior high student at the school Homecoming Parade Friday afternoon in a fatal accident. Our thoughts and prayers are with the healing family and community at this time and the whole town deserves a helmet sticker. Here is the rest of our Helmet Sticker recipients for week #5 action!
