Bellbrook playing for teammate - #Play4Payne
BELLBROOK -- On Janurary 19th Bellbrook players, coaches and family members got a phone call that made them fear the worst.
On his way to church to see a friend get baptized junior Payne Sigman was in a car accident which has left him in a coma.
After checking on their friend reactions were mixed from the team on whether or not they would play in upcoming basketball games. For Austin Hall it was almost instantaneous, that he wanted to play for his teammate that was in the hospital.
The team hasn't missed a game since Payne's accident and Bellbrook won the first four games while the junior was in a coma.
Not only are the Golden Eagles wearing shirts during warm-ups that say Play4Payne with his number (12), but opposing teams have been wearing similar shirts to show their support as well.
