Our Good News Story of the Day is... Family on the Field. Like lots of Texas families, the Dabner’s enjoy supporting their local high school football team. They usually stick to home games. However, last Friday night, the Highland Village family decided to drive about an hour away to cheer on Marcus High as they played Mansfield. During the game, a senior running back for Mansfield was playing so well, they announced his name. It was Elijah Carr-Walker. When the Dabner’s young son Ivory heard the name called, he said… “that was my brother.” And it was. The two were adopted by different families when Hurricane Katrina forced them from their New Orleans home, 10 years ago. But their brotherly bond forever remains.
