Trumann High School to Retire Smallwood's Jersey Tonight

TRUMANN, AR - Officials at Trumann High School tonight will honor the memory of Trumann native and THS graduate Erich Smallwood.

The 2002 graduate of the school was killed in action in Iraq earlier this year while serving with the northeast Arkansas-based Army National Guard's 875th Engineer Battalion.  Smallwood died in an IED explosion.

Smallwood's former high school football jersey and number will be retired at halftime of tonight's Trumann-Osceola football game at Wildcat Field.  The game begins at 7:30.

K8 News will have a full report on the ceremony tonight on K8 News Nightbeat.
