UK will hold a moment of silence for Marco Shemwell

Tomorrow marks one week since four-year-old Marco Shemwell was struck by a car as he and his family were leaving Kroger Field. In his honor, Kentucky will hold a moment of silence prior to the national anthem at the Mississippi State game.

If you missed our story on it last night, funeral services for Shemwell will be held Monday and Mark Stoops and the Kentucky Football team will serve as honorary pallbearers:

Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to the Shemwell family.

    They should include the little boy who was 9 that died in the flooding last week in Morehead.

      Oh and for my grandma that died a year ago! Cmon, while I don’t disagree with honoring tragic events, this shouldn’t be the first thought. This happened at the venue, let the Shemwell family have this moment honoring their son.

    They should put him up in the Ring of Honor through the season.

    Oh my goodness. If you look at that background, it appears that this pic was taken at the game that day that he was struck by the car. I’m so sad for everyone involved. Including that kid that hit him. I walked right where that intersection was at Cooper Dr and heard all of those sirens going to the site and said to my buddy. “Man, something terrible is going down”, because so many sirens were going off. Very different response at that moment, then on the way back to Louisville, Matt Jones announced what had happened on the radio right past Frankfort, on I64. So, so sad. Humbling.
