AUSTELL, Ga. -- They said he was more than a just a football player, he was an inspiration. Friends, family, and fans of De 'Antre Turman gathered Saturday to say goodbye to the Creekside High School football player who broke his neck during a scrimmage game last week. The funeral service started at Word of Faith Family Worship Cathedral in Austell.
"He was popular for all the right things, because he was a good kid and he was a good student," said Antonio Campbell, his childhood football coach. "He had charisma, he was smart, his teachers loved him and his coaches loved him."
