Movie recalls Marshall disaster
This time of year is always a difficult time for those who knew James Patterson.

Patterson, better known as “Crow” to his friends, was a member of the Marshall University football team that died in a plane crash on Nov. 14, 1970 after flying back to West Virginia following a game at East Carolina University.

Last month, on Nov. 11, ECU unveiled a plaque memorializing the tragic event more than 35 years ago.

And on this Friday, Warner Bros. will bring Marshall’s story to the big screen with “We Are Marshall”, focusing on the tragedy and triumph through adversity.
