ORANGE, Va. (CBS19 SPORTS) -- Prior to Friday night's football game against Eastern View, Orange County honored Darius Minor.
Minor collapsed and died during a preseason workout at the University of Maine. Minor was signed with Maine to begin his freshman football season.
Minor's mother and family members were on hand for the ceremony. Orange County announced a scholarship in Minor's honor to be given to a Hornet every year. New equipment for the Orange County weight room was also donated in Minor's honor.
"The tribute before the game was pretty phenomenal," Minor's cousin Rob Otey. "The scholarship and the award and such, I think its big. It goes hand in hand with what he wanted to accomplish as far as his legacy. His quote was, he wanted to be remembered 100 years from now. I think because of that, that's possible."
