PHILADELPHIA — Following the tragic shooting that occurred at Pleasantville High School during a football game on Nov. 15 between the Pleasantville Greyhounds and Camden Panthers, the two teams met again at Lincoln Financial Field not only to finish their game, but to come together as a community.

Isaiah Showell was at the Eagles’ home stadium to speak with Pleasantville Mayor Jesse Tweedle Sr., Senior Advisor to Gov. Murphy Derrick Green, Camden High School Cheerleading Coach Charae Thompson Perry, and others about the affect this senseless tragedy is having on their communities and the ways that they are coming together in the aftermath.

The shooting, which injured two and claimed the life of a 10-year-old boy, happened at approximately 8:30 p.m. on Friday in the stands at Pleasantville High School. Alvin Wyatt, 31, has been charged in connection with the shooting, along with four other men.
