"Brennan was a quiet and kind young man that played football for WHS," Dowd posted. "At this time I do not have service information, but as soon as I get that information I will let you know. Let’s remember this family in our thought and prayers as they work through this difficult time."
She said a plan to support all of WHS students and staff would be put in place "before we start back to school Monday." The school is closed this week for Spring Break.
