The dreams of two cousins killed in a plane crash 16 months ago are alive and well in Washington, Okla. 

Rocky and Scott Beller were killed in December 2011, when Rocky tried to land a plane in foul weather near Chickasha. In honor of them, a massive fund raising drive has netted more than a million dollars towards new athletic facilities next to the Washington High School football field. 

Both men played football there, and were very involved in the athletic programs there.  The new two-million dollar facility will open later this summer. 

"You're going to move on. You're going to live, but the scars are still there," said Brad Beller, who is Washington High School's football coach, and the son of Rocky Beller.

Washington High School's athletic director says more than a quarter-million dollars of just plumbing has been donated to this project.
