Football is hard enough when you are playing the game for yourself and trying to make sure that you carry out the myriad of assignments which are asked of you throughout the 48-minute contest. It can become even more difficult when playing for people other than yourself. When jersey number five opened up at North Central High School prior to the start of the 2016 season, senior DaShon Bethea knew he had to wear it in honor of his friend and former Camden High linebacker Sterling Felder, who passed away due to injuries sustained in a traffic accident one week after his final game as a Bulldog in November of 2015.
