In Michigan, the Wolverine conference dedicated all of it's games Friday night to Wes Leonard.
On March 3rd, 2011 Leonard had just made the game winning basket in overtime for Fennville. The shot not only sent him over the 1,000 point career mark but also secured an undefeated regular season.
As the team and crowd celebrated, Leonard collapsed moments later and died from sudden cardiac arrest due to an enlarged heart.
The Wolverine conference sold t-shirts with the goal of raising $25,000 for the Wes Leonard Heart Team Foundation, created by his mother. In return, the Foundation is donating Automated Electronic Defibrillators to each of the Wolverine conference schools.
Former Fennville coach Ryan Klingler said that this is a great way to honor Wes' memory. Whether they save one or one hundred lives, it is worth the fight to get AEDs in every school.
