at the Taunton Holiday Inn.
Presented to Tyrone Forbes
Tyrone is a 1986 graduate of Mansfield High School who was an All-Star basketball player for the Hornets during his four year career. He was captain of the team during his senior year and also received many MVP awards.
He was also a popular member of the student body who was respected by the faculty and his classmates.
Tyrone served as an outstanding role model for other student-athletes.
Tonight we honor Tyrone for his courageous battle with ALS. Tyrone has remained enthusiastic and positive with his friends and family as he has shown bravery and determination in battling the effects of this disease. He has once again become a leader and inspirational role model for those around him with the dignity and perseverance he has displayed while facing the adversity of ALS.
Tyrone was honored for his courage at the Homecoming game this season and he joined the captains of the football team for the pre-game coin toss.
His inspirational presence inspired the team to a great victory over the previously undefeated King Philip Warrior.
He was welcomed by fans, players, parents and alumni after the game.
