Mother of Alberta crash survivor wants thief to return football souvenirs

The mother of an Alberta high school football player who survived a car crash that killed four teammates wants a thief to return some sports memorabilia that means the world to her son.

EDMONTON — The mother of an Alberta high school football player who survived a car crash that killed four teammates wants a thief to return some sports memorabilia that means the world to her son.

Desiree Judd says she discovered the family’s truck had been stolen from outside their Edmonton apartment when she went to take 16-year-old Zach to physical therapy.

Inside the vehicle were various sports items — including an autographed Edmonton Eskimos helmet and game ball — sent to teen following the crash last October.

Judd says she doesn’t care about the truck as much as her son cares about the football gifts that have helped him during his recovery.

The teen spent months in hospital after a suspected drunk driver in a pickup truck plowed into a car carrying the five boys, all members of the Grande Prairie Composite High School Warriors.

He is wrapping up work with physiotherapists to overcome a brain injury and restore his sense of balance before returning home.
