Today 8/30/18 the Millbrook High School Football team in Winchester, Va is paying tribute to Sergeant Baker. Every week the football team plays a game dedicated to a fallen hero of the military, police force or fire and rescue. We play in honor of this hero to let the legacy of that hero live on through our players. Its not to fire them up or get excited but to help them learn and honor the respect they should have for heroes like Sergeant Baker; that their world should not be condemned to only Winchester but to see that there are MANY people in this great nation that sacrifice their lives to save ours. So Thank you Sergeant Baker and his family for keeping our communities safe and making the ultimate Sacrifice for us. Tonight you will be honored!

Head Coach Josh Haymore
Citizen of this great nation!
