Wiregrass Ranch and Zephyrhills will remember former coach and teacher Chris Bounnell before Thursday's football game. Bounnell died after the second day of school. He was 54.

Bounnell was a longtime teacher at both schools. He served as an assistant at Zephyrhills from 1991-2004 before going to Wiregrass Ranch, where he spent three years as the weightlifting coach.

The schools will hold a joint tribute after and present framed jerseys from both schools to his wife, Diane, and daughter, Sydney.
