GEORGETOWN, Del.- Gone but never forgotten. That is the message the Sussex Tech High School football program is making sure its student athletes understand about the victims of 9/11.

Most of the players were too young to remember the terror attacks that took place on that horrific day.

Head Coach Mark Quillin sat his players down and spoke from the heart to educate them.

“I was watching TV a couple days after that and the New York City Fire Department had a press conference,” Quillin said.  “They talked about the firefighters, policemen, military and talked about their brotherhood and what they really stood for.”

The brotherhood reminded Quillin of how his football team operates.

“There is just something different about the brotherhood that they keep,” Quillin said.

The Ravens will stand together in brotherhood Friday night as they wear special red, white and blue socks to commemorate the victims of 9/11 as they take on Alexis I. DuPont High School at 7 p.m. on the road.
