EL PASO, Texas -- Thursday, September 22, will be known as Abraham Romero day. He's the Organ Mountain Football player who died over the weekend.
The Las Cruces City Council approved a resolution dedicating Thursday to Romero.
The date was chosen in tribute to his number on the team. Romero was hospitalized after a serious injury in a game in Deming on August 26.
To honor Romero, people are asked on that day to treat each other as family, watch out for each other, encourage each other and act with thought and care for each other.
