The Edmond North football booster club set up a fund to help the family with burial costs at the Citizens Bank branch on Coffee Creek Road.
“That really is their most immediate need,” Parks said. “We’ve had a tremendous outpouring of support.”
The district will hold a moment of silence for Smith before Thursday night’s U.S. Grant-Edmond Santa Fe football game at Wantland Stadium.
There will also be a moment of silence before Edmond North’s game against Westmoore on Friday at Moore Stadium.
“He was a young boy that was just trying to enjoy life,” Lively said.
