Tragedy struck Weatherford ISD and its student body upon learning of the sudden death of Brennan Weikel, a senior at Weatherford High School. The teen was killed Monday in a hunting accident, according to WISD officials.
News of the incident could be seen on the Weatherford football Twitter page (@WHS Football), in a posting from WHS Principal Kristy Dowd, which read:
"Gone but never forgotten. Thank you #39 RIP"
She then went on to say that Weikel was killed in the hunting accident while with his family.
"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.
