Norman Football Player Dies After Car Crash
NORMAN, Oklahoma - After suffering serious injuries in a crash last August, Jake Thomas-Simmons has passed away.
Friends say Jake had spent the weekend with family, and was headed back to school in southwestern Oklahoma when he got into a single car accident.
Jake graduated from Norman North in May and was a freshman at Southwestern Oklahoma State University, playing football on scholarship.
"He is the reason why I coach High School Football. He is the epitome of a good kid, good family," said Norman North Football Coach, Rich.
An account has been set up at Republic Bank and Trust to help Jake's family.
