(WJET/WFXP/YourErie.com)– After discussions between community members and loved ones, the Millcreek Township School District announced in a press release that they will retire jersey #23 for McDowell's football team to recognize former student Johnny Heubel. Heubel suffered a life-altering brain injury on the sideline of a game while on the McDowell football team back in September, 2020. 'As a district, we pride ourselves on anchoring 100 percent of our decisions in what's in the best interest of students, and to the greatest extent possible, all other stakeholders.
