Thomas More Football Player, Campbell Co. Grad Killed in ATV Crash

An early morning ATV accident in Campbell Co. killed a Thomas More College football player Monday.

Mitch Kramer, who turned 21 two weeks ago, died at the scene of the accident near Alexandria.

He was a junior at Thomas More.

"He was a dedicated biology major and committed member of the Saints football team," wrote Thomas More President David Armstrong in a message to the campus community. Armstrong and Head Football Coach Regis Scafe visited with Kramer's family, the message said. "We have campus counselor, campus minister, and campus priests available at our chapel to meet with Mitch's fellow students, teammates, and faculty members."

The noon mass on campus was dedicated in Kramer's honor and there will be an 8 p.m. candlelight vigil on campus Monday.

Kramer graduated from Campbell County High School where he was captain of the football team and played in the East/West All-Star Game.
