A former Central High School football and lacrosse star will be remembered at the annual June 15 football camp Christon Gill operates at the school.

“We’re going to have shirts made up with his initials,” said Gill, who played football with Emmanuel Osei Ansong Omari at the school.

Omari, 25, was found dead April 6 in California’s San Francisco Bay. While the medical examiner’s report has not been released, published reports indicated he drowned. At the time, Omari was visiting friends in California.

On May 20 family and friends remembered his life during a memorial service at Calgary St. George’s Episcopal Anglican Church in Bridgeport, the city where Omari was born.
