Last month, the Chargers donated 150 Xenith football helmets to Compton Centennial and Gardena after tragedy struck both high schools last October.
Coincidentally, those two teams played against each other last Thursday, with Compton Centennial winning 20-18 over Gardena in thrilling fashion.
The night was not about results, though. It was about remembering two young men, gone too soon. Watch the full CBSLA story below:
This week, the Chargers finalized a donation of 150 Xenith football helmets to Compton Centennial and Gardena High Schools as the two teams faced each other on the gridiron. The donation came about after the devastating shooting deaths of two students, who each attended the respective schools, in late 2020. During the game, each team wore stickers on their helmets with the students' initials.
Compton Centennial notched their first win of the season, beating Gardena 20-18 in overtime.
