A former Kennesaw Mountain High School football player was one of six United States Army soldiers who died in Afghanistan following a helicopter crash on Tuesday, December, 17th.
Sergeant 1st Class Omar Forde was a member of the first full class to attend Kennesaw Mt. graduating in 2004. He was a fixture on the Mustang football team during his time at KMHS playing in the defensive secondary. He staked his place in Mustang football history on October 5th, 2001 when he intercepted a pass in what would later become known as “Omar’s Corner” of the northwest end zone to seal a 10-7 victory over Caravel Academy from Delaware. This corner will be formally dedicated this fall at KMHS's first home game.
Omar always had a smile on his face and a joke in mind that would cheer up not only his team mates but coaches alike. He will always be in our hearts and minds and will forever be remembered as a Mustang!
