The Newtown High School football team finished its season undefeated Tuesday night, the same week the Connecticut State’s Attorney released a report about the Dec. 14, 2012 mass shooting at nearby Sandy Hook Elementary School.
BuzzFeed reports that the Nighthawks dedicated their season to the 26 victims of the shooting, wearing the number 26 and the color green on their helmets. The Hardford Courant also has pictures of the team’s “dedicated season.”
Newtown’s win in the annual Thanksgiving game secures a No. 1 seed for the team in the state tournament.
Monday’s report revealed the shooter, Adam Lanza, planned the rampage on his own and had an obsession with mass killings. It also concluded that the motive for the attack may never be known.
