WILMINGTON — Some special activities are planned for Friday night’s football game in honor of 2015 WHS grad Mark Elliott O’Neal Huff, 21, of Sabina, who died last Friday.

Huff was struck by a car while trying to cross State Route 78 in Oceanside, California, according to the California Highway Patrol.

He was stationed in California as a Motor Transport Operator with the U.S. Marine Corps.

Huff was well-known to the Clinton County community while at WHS, including as an athlete where he excelled on the wrestling, track and football teams as well as other extracurriculars.

On Friday night when Wilmington hosts Clinton-Massie, a moment of silence will be held, according to WCS Superintendent Mindy McCarty-Stewart.

She said that several parents will be selling Mark Huff bracelets, with the proceeds going to the family

Student Haley Reynolds will be selling raffle tickets for a Hurricane Spirit Bag, with proceeds going to a Huff Scholarship.
