On November 14, 1970, a chartered jet carrying most of the Marshall University football team clipped a stand of trees and crashes into a hillside just two miles from the Tri-State Airport in Kenova, West Virginia, killing everyone onboard.The team was returning from that day’s game, a 17-14 loss to East Carolina University. Thirty-seven Marshall football players were aboard the plane, along with head coach Rick Tolley, its doctors, the university athletic director and 25 team boosters–some of Huntington, West Virginia’s most prominent citizens–who had traveled to North Carolina to cheer on the Thundering Herd. “The whole fabric,” a citizen of Huntington wrote later, “the whole heart of the town was aboard.”
75 lives lost, 51 years ago this Sunday. 75 who didn’t get to spend Thanksgiving with their families. 50 years of holidays and special occasions. For the 37 players on the flight, That’s 37 young men, sons, brothers, friends who didn’t get the opportunities to be thankful for the blessings we have every single day. 37 men who didn’t get the opportunity to experience the joy of marriage, fatherhood, and the opportunity to invigorate male community leadership through the tenants of Fitness, Fellowship, and Faith.
No other program in Division I lost more football games than Marshall University in the 1970’s. But in 1971, then head coach Jack Lengyl gave what is one of the greatest speeches to his team ever given, and his words are what it means to persevere and be a High Impact Man that leads. F3 is who we are, and what we need to show is our heart. I know everyone’s heart, I see it everyday we post, every time someone needs our prayers, or a hand up, or on the fields and roads where we work. From the soles of our feet and every ounce of blood we work to become better. This workout today was designed to remember, 75 sons of Marshall, including those who didn’t make the trip, like Co-Captain Nate Ruffin, who was instrumental in leading the charge of the Herd.
Luke Chapter One verse 37 tells us that: “For Nothing is impossible with God.” Everyday we have the opportunity to serve, to lead, to make a high impact on the lives of those around us as well as ourselves, through perseverance. Just like the Young Thundering Herd persevered, they fought, scratched and clawed their way back from the ashes of one of the greatest tragedies in the history of sports. When many thought they should lay down and quit, they continued to work, and believe in the process until they were successful both on and off the field. Gentlemen, the 75 who perished and those who promised to honor their legacy are the blueprint of being a high impact man, not always perfect, but never willing to quit, either.
Let’s take a knee,
Dear Heavenly Father, we come to you today humbled and grateful for your prescence, thankful for the fellowship that F3 brings us. We know that you sent your son to walk with us so he could pay the ultimate price so we could be forgiven of all of our sins. We ask that you keep all the PAX who are injured and recovering from injury in your prayers, Underoos and his M as they continue the journey of IVF, Heidi’s M as she recovers, Chowdah’s M and her continuing fight, and all those who are hurting and in need of God’s grace as we say, Our Father, who art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven, give us this day our Daily Bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for thine is the kingdom, the power, and glory forever, Amen.
