John Murano is in hospice but still wants to see Brooks Trom, his grandson, and the rest of the team play. He and his granddaughter stayed more than a social distance from others during the Blue Devils' last home game of the regular season, parking the car in the northeast corner of the field near the Martensdale fire and rescue team.

Brooks Trom knows who his biggest fan is.

The group promised to keep playing until late in November and told Murano "we hope we make you proud."
