Tabor/McPherson Football Game Cancelled Following Player's Death


MCPHERSON, Kan. (AP) — Tabor College and McPherson College have canceled their upcoming football game as an investigation continues into the beating death of a Tabor player. The schools jointly announced Thursday that the October 20 game was canceled to honor 26-year-old Brandon Brown, who died in September after being found beaten on a McPherson street. Two former McPherson football players, Alton Franklin and DeQuinte Flournoy, both 19, have been charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder in Brown's death. Their preliminary hearing has been moved to October 29. A joint statement from the presidents of both colleges said the cancellation would also respect the ongoing criminal investigation. The schools are planning several events in the coming year to help students deal with Brown's death and to develop harmony between the two campuses.
