Students in the area showed their support by wearing red and using the hashtag ‘ Hayden 94’ on Twitter. 94 was his football jersey number.

Hayden Blalock’s final resting place is at the Woodlawn Cemetery.

The Blalock brothers are survived by his parents, Craig and Danielle Blalock, and their sister Emily.
