HUNTINGDON (September 7) — Prior to Friday night’s gridiron battle between the Huntingdon Mustangs and Camden Lions, the teams shared a moment of solemn unity to honor the late Will Fisher. Captains for each team carried jerseys bearing the number 55 to midfield for the pregame coin toss.
Fisher wore 55 during his four years as a Mustang, twice earning All-Region honors before graduating in 2002. After graduating from Middle Tennessee State University in 2007, he taught and coached at Lewis County, Camden and West Carroll before going to Spring Hill High School, where he was a U.S. History and Government teacher and offensive line coach until his death on September 2 at age 33.
A memorial was held Thursday at First United Methodist Church in Huntingdon. Mourners from each of the five schools attended, including the entire Spring Hill football team, and number 55 jerseys from each school were draped on the casket.
Fisher is the son of Susan McCormick Fisher of Huntingdon and Keith Miller Fisher, Jr. of Union City.
