Holt High School’s Jalen Merriweather led his team to an area basketball championship less than 24 hours before he lost his life in a shooting last week.
The 18-year-old died protecting his sister, and the Holt High School Ironman family is giving him the honor he deserves.
Tonight, his coach and teammates are presenting Jalen’s family with his No. 4 jersey and retiring the number as a tribute to the teen taken away all too soon.
Merriweather will be laid to rest Saturday.
