Somber moment to remember Anthony Hartfield at U.S. Grant-Southeast game Tuesday

A circle of red and blue formed at midcourt Tuesday night when players from the U.S. Grant and Southeast boys basketball teams locked arms during a moment of silence to remember former Grant player Anthony Hartfield.

The 20-year-old Hartfield was shot and killed in an apparent botched robbery attempt at his home on Monday. Here’s the story.

U.S. Grant is also planning something special to remember Hartfield at its homecoming game against John Marshall on Feb. 1. Hartfield was a two-time Big All-City and All-State honorable mention selection by The Oklahoman during his career at U.S. Grant.
