ODESSA - Fields of Faith is put on every year by Fellowship for Christian Athletes, but this year they're using the event to honor Permian High School student, Hunter Miller, who lost his life in a car accident over the weekend.  


The 16-year-old was a hockey-loving junior at PHS.

Hundreds of his classmates gathered at Ratliff Stadium Wednesday night at the Fields of Faith event, many wore white to show solidarity but his best friends wore red--Hunter's favorite color.   

"Hunter was there for everybody, he always loved revving his truck. I mean, every morning he pulled through and he pulled through, all of us and he just revved it and people would get the biggest smile," one of his best friends, Fletcher Fields, said. 


"He had the same one and we'd just honk our horns at each other," Bobby Drake said.  


But it's not just his red truck and random trips to Chick-Fil-A that they'll miss the most.

"His smile. Yeah, it made my day everyday, if I was having a bad day I would just go look at him, I wouldn't even have to say anything. He would just look at me like and he always told us he loved us--his brothers," his friends said. 

In a statement from Principal Ramage, he says that "Hunter was very social, well-liked, and respected at our school and we will miss him very much [...] and hunter will always be apart of our Mojo family."  

"I love you dude, and I will always miss Chick-Fil-A every morning with you. You're my boy no matter what," his friends said.  

According to the Odessa Jackalopes Facebook page, where Hunter played junior hockey, a donation account has been set up at Aim Banks in both Midland and Odessa under account number 100103664.
