NAVASOTA, Texas (KBTX) -- Hundreds gathered at Rattler Stadium in Navasota tonight to remember Sammy Blair.

The 2016 Navasota graduate died a week ago in a tragic ATV accident, and the community gathered together tonight in his honor.

A game jersey was signed by the community this past week and presented to his family on the field tonight.

Blair was a part of two state championship football teams at Navasota, and the two-time district MVP went on to play baseball in college at Arkansas and Blinn.

Sammy's funeral will be Saturday morning at 10:30 a.m. at the St. Mary's Catholic Church in Plantersville.

Our hearts go out to Sammy's family and friends.
