HANOVER COUNTY, Va. — A football scrimmage between Lee-Davis High and Douglas Freeman High Thursday night started with a moment of silence for a fallen student.

Former Douglas Freeman football player Frank Woolwine Jr., was remembered by both teams at the Lee-Davis football field in Hanover County.

Before the scrimmage, the two teams took a knee in the middle of the field and held a moment of silence in honor of the 16-year-old.

Frank was killed when his car ran off the road and hit a tree on Westham Parkway, just north of Pinetree Road in Henrico County’s West End.

The accident was less than two weeks ago on August 6.

Just months ago, Lee-Davis High also lost a football player in a Hanover County crash.
