Ed Thomas Funeral
The funeral for Ed Thomas was held this week, and there were NFL players in attendance.
The 58 year-old coach who had been gunned down recently in the Aplington-Parkersburg High School weight room, was mourned and remembered this week.
His funeral was packed, they could barely fit everybody inside the church community center and parking lot. There were four NFL players who had played football for coach Thomas. Green Bay Packers linebacker Aaron Kampman, Jacksonville Jaguars center Brad Meester, Detroit Lions defensive end Jared DeVries and Denver Broncos center Casey Wiegmann.
All four served as pallbearers.
