September 18, 2010WEST ORANGE - West Orange-Stark senior and starting quarterback Reggie Garrett died Friday night after collapsing at Dan R. Hooks Stadium in West Orange. There was not a dry eye in the stadium after the Mustangs' 27-7 win over Jasper. The score did not matter. The statistics did not matter. The Mustangs' family had lost a young man many were calling "a great human being."
Garrett collapsed shortly after throwing a 13-yard touchdown to Mark Roberts early in the second quarter. He died at Memorial Baptist-Orange at about 9:30 p.m., after reaching the hospital an hour earlier. Mustangs' head coach Dan Hooks said Garrett did not do a lot of celebrating after the touchdown and had not shown signs of any health problems this year.
