Corona del Sol student, former football player dies in accident

Posted by on January 23, 2013 – 3:04 pm

It’s been a rough couple days around Corona del Sol this week, including the football program.

Aztecs coach Tom Joseph said junior Jake McGrady was killed in a sledding accident near Flagstaff during the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend.

McGrady, a junior, was in the football program as a freshman and played JV as a sophomore, but didn’t play his junior season this past fall.

Joseph said McGrady was with nearly a dozen other students and a couple parents on the overnight trip. Most of the kids in the Aztecs program found were told Monday and Tuesday.

“They had a tough time with this (Tuesday) but most of them are doing a little better (Wednesday),” Joseph said. “He was a really well-liked kid.”

The funeral is scheduled for Saturday.
