Winning one for Nate

Just hours after Nate Maki’s funeral in Argyle, his teammates on Guyer High School’s football team hit the field to honor the teen’s memory Thursday night.

Maki, 18, was shot and killed in what police are calling a tragic hunting accident in Montague County last Saturday.

Many students and players wore Maki’s No. 33 jersey number on their faces and fans donned T-shirts honoring the teen that were sold at the game with proceeds going to the Maki family.

The team presented Maki’s jersey, signed by his teammates, to his family and showed a video montage during the game.

Guyer’s football booster club has set up an account at Northstar Bank for Maki’s family.  Donations can be made at any Northstar Bank location.

The Wildcats (1-1) had a late run to get their first win of the season, beating Colleyville Heritage 35-14 at C.H. Collins Athletic Complex in Denton.
