Coach Jay Wilson tells WITN Edwards was “always laughing and joking and overcame a lot just to be able to play football.” He goes on to say that Edwards “had his kidney removed halfway through his junior year and worked hard to return for his senior year.” Wilson adds that he believes the crash happened somewhere near Ayden.
