Iola school superintendent Doug Devine says counselors from surrounding districts were on hand Friday to assist.

A memorial fund has been established at the First National Bank in Anderson, and game towels in the youngster’s memory will be sold during Saturday night’s playoff game in Groesbeck.

James was the water boy on the Bulldogs varsity football team, which is making its first playoff appearance in six seasons.
