A Temperance Bedford football player has passed away after being in a car accident yesterday. Being from Temperance and having gone to Bedford, it is all anybody can talk about. It is truely heartbreaking as a girl from the freshman class was killed only a month ago. I'd just like to ask the board for their prayers to the family. Also thank you to some Michigan football players such as Shane, Devon, and Khalid Hill for their retweets about it. Many schools in the Southeast Michigan area such as Saline, Monroe, and Toledo Whitmer have planned a red out in his honor and I'm sure more will follow.
OT: Temperance Bedford football player passes away
RIP young man. I can't imagine losing a child at such a young age.
Hopefully my Tecumseh Indians will show some support for your Mules as well.
RIP thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Many questions surround this incident like what was he doing at 9am on a wednesday driving not in school and how was he able to total his car by smashing a parked garbage truck in broad daylight?
Incredibly sad news. Thoughts and condolences to the families and community as well as Durbin's teammates.
Glad to see that my Hornets will participate in the memorial for Colton Durbin. Very nice tribute.
I currently go to Saline and just for clarification want to say we do an "out" every week and the red out was planned before this happened but I guess now is in support of Bedford
I live in Temperance and I'm also a Bedford graduate. Tragic news. A bright young life taken away too soon. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends.
There's nothing worse to watch than parents burying their kids. We've had a couple deaths in our football program over the last couple years, and it's painful to watch those futures evaporate.
Condolences from a Monroe Trojan. Bedford seems to have taken on more of these tragedies than most over the years. It seems you cannot drive those roads in the area without seeing memorials to accident victims off to the side.
Michigan roads are not the states crown jewel to say the least. I can easily say that the roads in the Temperance area are among the worst I've seen in the state of Michigan and probably in all of my travels in the US. The rural roads in the Dominican Republic are on par with SE michigans roads. The roads could've definitely played a part in this tradegy.
That's not an exaggeration at all either. I've been quite a few places in Michigan and most of the roads aren't great, but many of the roads in Bedford Township are literally death waiting to happen.
From what I heard his phone was found in his bookbag in the back seat, so that leaves distracted by phone as a cause. Perhaps we'll never really know for sure what happened.
Condolences to the Bedford family. I grew up in Erie and my wife is a Bedford grad. This has been heavy on our hearts over the last 2 days. R.I.P. CD3.
Good luck to the rest of the Kicking Mule team as they try to complete their undefeated season tonight. Go out and win one for Colton.
Shutout #3 for the Mules tonight to cap off a perfect season. It still hurts, but very proud of how the players handled it. I just hope they take it one game at a time.
For the second playoff week for the my Saline Hornets and Bedford game down in Bedford. The mules are undefeated and Saline is 8-1 with their only loss to Bedford in a game they were leading in the 4th quarter. Definitely two of the best 10 teams in the state and a pretty good rivalry. Obviously with what Bedford is playong for it should be a very emotional and intense game. Anyone who is interested in Michigan HS Football should be there at Bedford Nov. 8, both teams carry very good fanbases so it will be packed.
Its crazy to see how far the Bedford football program has come. I remember when Monroe first put them back on the schedule thinking how great its going to be to pummel them every year. Well that happened for the first couple but man things have changed.
