16-year old Tate Myre was one of the four students who were killed in November’s tragic shooting at Oxford High School in Michigan.

According to several accounts, Tate heroically rushed the suspect and attempted to disarm him when he was gunned down. His selfless act of bravery provided many of his classmates with the seconds they needed to get out of harm’s way. Deputies that responded to the scene carried the critically wounded boy to a patrol car and transported him to the hospital, but he died while enroute. The gunman responsible for the attack was taken into custody at the scene.

Tate Myre was remembered as a hardworking and respectful young man, as well as a standout athlete at Oxford High School. The beloved 11th grader played on the school’s varsity football team since freshman year, and had the potential to advance to college-level ball.

Off the field, Tate excelled academically. He was an honor student who maintained a 3.9 GPA. There is currently a petition to rename the school’s “Wildcat Stadium” after him. It reads “Tate is not just a hero to his fellow students at Oxford high school, but a legend. His act of bravery should be remembered forever and passed down through generations. He put his life in danger to try and help the thousands of other students at Oxford High School”.
