SAN ANTONIO – Community members took an extra moment on Saturday to honor the life of former Judson Rocket football player Bryce Wisdom.

An honorary jersey was also presented to Wisdom’s mom and family.

Bryce’s mom, Diana Wisdom was overcome by emotion. She said the honor was a surprise and was overwhelmed by the tremendous amounts of support.

“I’m just so humbled by just the outpouring of love and support from the city and the people in it. It’s just so amazing and it’s so needed because this is what gets me up, makes me keep going,” said Diana Wisdom.
