A New Braunfels Canyon student who died from injuries suffered in an assault on campus was laid to rest Monday.

Family and friends gathered to remember the life of Logan Davidson, 15, during a funeral at Oakwood Baptist Church in New Braunfels.

Logan, a sophomore, was laid to rest at Hill Country Memorial Gardens.

New Braunfels police said Logan was assaulted by another sophomore Tuesday morning in a school hallway. Logan died the next day at University Hospital.

The Bexar County Medical Examiner's Office ruled that Logan died of blunt force trauma to the head that led to bleeding in the brain from a lacerated artery.

New Braunfels police and Comal ISD officials continue to investigate the assault.

Teammates wearing Canyon High School football jerseys walked with other young classmates into the funeral.

Later on, school buses were part of the procession to Logan's gravesite.

"We're celebrating Logan's life today," said Canyon High School classmate Reagan Brucks, who had known Logan since elementary school.

"I'm going to miss him talking," she added. "I had him in my technology class and he lightened everybody's day."

Marcie Ortega, whose daughter was friends with Logan, said his passing has impacted her whole family.

"It's made me tear up a few times, myself," she said. "My kids are very sad as well. I have three other children and they're sad for their sister."

Some students outside the funeral service said speculation about who is to blame for the assault and if bullying was involved has only added to the pain.

"It does offend me and some of Canyon. It does affect us so bad hearing all these stories," said freshman Aubriana Garza.

Many students say their grief has brought them closer together.

"Not just Canyon High School, but New Braunfels. We have all come together and supported one another to be one huge family and one town," said Brucks.

"God has a path for each and everyone one of us and Logan took his path," added Garza.
