Holmes, Scott Football Teams Pay Tribute to Latonia Boy Killed on Bike

Before the start of Friday night's football match-up between Holmes and Scott, the two teams joined together to honor the memory of the 6-year old boy killed while riding his bike in Latonia earlier this month.

Eli Kindt died at the scene when a large landscaping truck struck him on 32nd Street.

Kindt was a young player in the Bengal Tigers youth football program. The boy has been remembered in tributes by the Northern Kentucky Football League and in a solemn vigil and balloon release at the site of his death.

On Friday night at Tom Ellis Stadium, the Bulldogs and Eagles worked together to deliver a football signed by both teams, and a #45 jersey from Holmes to the boy's mother, Casey Jones.

Eli Kindt wore #45 for the Bengal Tigers.

The man who was driving the landscaping truck is charged with leaving the scene of an accident/failure to render aid. Christopher Wells, 45, was in jail for thirteen days but is now out on bond awaiting a determination from the Kenton County Grand Jury on whether he will be indicted.
