Winner Mourns 16-Year-Old Boy Killed In Farm Accident

The town of Winner is mourning a 16-year-old boy who died after a farm accident.    School Superintendent Bruce Carrier says counselors and ministers were made available to students Wednesday and Thursday, after junior Taylor Watzel died Wednesday after becoming trapped in a grain bin the day before.    Watzel was a lineman and linebacker on the high school football team. The team displayed his No. 66 jersey on the sideline during a Thursday win over Jones County/White River. Fans also signed a large poster in his memory, and a moment of silence was held before kickoff.    Mason Funeral Home says funeral services are set for 10 a.m. Monday in the Winner Armory.
