I found this in a paper that they do about mock trial here in our area. His teacher, his friend mentioned him. I did not know it was done. But even  if I did I was still numb so a lot of things people say I did not fully relate.  So please indulge me in letting me  post this about my son Tyler passed away March 1 of this year

His teacher said why I devote so much energy to coaching, and I
rarely bother to explain.
But today, I do. I share my story because one of my
Mock Trial kids – Tyler Andrews – asked me multiple times
to share with him the story of how I came to be a Mock
Trial coach, but I never did; and now, much worse, Tyler’s
own unique story will never be told, because it is left unfinished.

Today we lost him in a terrible car accident. We are
all in a state of shock. My Mock Trial captain cannot be
gone. Just last year, at this very same time, we heard our
name called by that lady on that balcony: “Centennial!”
Tyler was right there, the ever-faithful team captain.
He immediately gave me a hug, so excited that we had
earned one of those coveted spots, and he said, “They
called our name, right?”
“Yes”; I shook my head, still trying to make sure myself
that our name was called.
Tyler held up his arms in a shout of victory: “Centennial!
Remember our name!”
Remember our name. What I wouldn’t give to hear
Tyler say those words again, even for just one more time.
Remember our name, please . . .
Jennifer Taylor teaches AP history at Centennial High School.
She has been the Mock Trial Teacher and Attorney coach with
the Centennial team for 5 years.
