Buena Vista High School of Buena Vista, CO. Wins Fight Like Dylan Award

The town of Buena Vista, CO. suffered an awful tragedy in September, when a rock slide took the lives of five people on a family hike, including assistant football coach Dwayne Johnson and his wife, track and field coach Dawna Johnson. Three other family members also passed away, but through Dwayne’s strength and courage, he was able to save the couple’s 13-year-old daughter, Gracie Johnson. The football team was understandably overcome with emotion the rest of the season but made an incredible run, finishing with an 11-1 record before falling in the CHSAA 1A Football Championship state semifinals.
