PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) -

School counselors and church ministers spent the day at Pascagoula High School helping students and teachers cope with their grief over the tragic loss of a former classmate.

Marshawn Joseph, Jr. and his dad, Keith Joseph, Sr., died in a car crash Friday afternoon. The father and son were on their way to watch the Pascagoula High football game.

Marshawn, known as M.J., graduated from the school last year. He played football in Pascagoula for two years before he followed his dad's footsteps and signed with Mississippi State University.

Friends remember Marshawn as an upbeat, hardworking and inspirational young man who looked up to his dad.

Trang Pham Bui will have more on this emotional day tonight on WLOX News and WLOX.com.
