Clay-Chalkville honors Mekail Evans before spring game

By Gary Lloyd

CLAY — Clay-Chalkville football players honored the late Mekail Evans before Friday’s spring game against Parker.

When Cougars players emerged from the locker room to run onto the field, rising junior defensive back Kambri King and rising senior wide receiver Tyler Chatman carried Evans’ No. 30 away jersey, each holding one sleeve up in the air.

A moment of silence was held prior to kickoff.

The PA announcer called it a “somber occasion” and described Evans as a great person and ferocious tackler.

Players this season will wear a No. 30 sticker on their helmets.

Evans died at home after working out at a local YMCA last month.
