Memorial service honors Dunbar

D’IBERVILLE - The D’Iberville High School gym, normally a place for slam dunks and pep rallys, is filled today with more than 2,000 grieving fans of Latrell “Fred” Dunbar.

Dunbar, No. 18, died Friday after he collapsed on the field during an away game at Gautier High School.

An autopsy showed the cause of death to be sudden cardiac death.

A memorial service was held this afternoon. Entire football teams from Coast high school were asked to attend, officials said, but were limited to representatives to save space.

Dunbar's father, Fred, was expected to speak at the service.
