A tragic accident last fall claimed the life of Mokena native and Lincoln-Way East alum Andrew Tagli, a member of the Griffins’ 2005 state championship-winning football team.

But after the recent efforts of his mother, Kim, Andrew’s name will live on while also benefitting current football players at East.

In May, Kim raised more than $7,500 for scholarship money to be given out in her son’s name to East football players.
