GLENDALE- From the moment the Nicolet Knights stepped on the field, it was clear the first game of the season would be tough. Not because of the team they were playing, but because of the teammate they were playing without.

"The team choose to play with 10 men instead of 11 ... for their fallen comrade," explains District Administrator Robert Kobylski.

Friday night, signs of Tyler Webb could be seen throughout the stands and on the sidelines.

"I'm always going to miss him," said classmate Michael Brown, "He is [like] a brother, I loved him."

From t-shirts, to bracelets - even one of Tyler's favorite accessories.

"Tyler loved crazy socks. He would always wear the craziest socks," said Brown

As classmates grieve Tyler's death, they are hoping others struggling with the thought of suicide know they are not alone.

"It's important to talk to your friends," says Kenyon Holt. "Because sometimes you can't always talk to your parents."
