Tate Myre made the ultimate sacfrifice to try and save lives by putting his on the line. Myre was the junior running back and middle linebacker on the football squad.

The 16-year-old was gunned down when he attempted to “disarm the shooter,” according to a change.org petition created to honor the teen. He has been described as a “hero” after he reportedly died trying to protect his classmates.

Now people do not want to forget him after his heroic act likely saved lives, so they are currently signing a petition to rename the school’s football stadium after him. Thousands of people have already signed the petition.

In the wake of the shooting at a school in Michigan, tens of thousands of people have signed a petition to rename the local football stadium in honor of Tate Myre.

“Tate is not just a hero to his fellow students at Oxford high school but a legend, his act of bravery should be remembered forever and passed down through generations,” it read.

What makes this situation so sad is that Myre was was on a recruiting trip to Toledo and posted about his experience on social media.

Myre passed away in a police car as a deputy rushed him to a hospital following the shooting, Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard told reporters late Tuesday.

“One of our deputies, due to the severity of wounds, loaded up one of the children in his car and sadly, that child died in the car,” Bouchard said. “One of our employees who was in the 911 center as part of the team taking the emergency calls, had a relative killed. This touches us all personally, deeply and will for a long time.
