NASSAU COUNTY, Fla. — A soccer game will be held Friday in Callahan to honor Deputy Joshua Moyers.
The fallen Nassau County Sheriff’s deputy was shot during a traffic stop in Callahan last month and later died of his injuries two days later.
The sheriff’s office arrested his accused killer, Patrick McDowell, following a five-day manhunt. He’s facing premeditated first-degree murder and aggravated battery on a police dog.
On Friday, Oct. 8, the Callahan Soccer Club will host a “Moyer’s Warriors Coaches vs Coaches” game at 7 p.m. at the field behind Callahan Intermediate School on Alligator Creek Hunting Club.
Law enforcement, K-9 officers, as well as the community, is invited to share their love and support for Moyers and the sheriff’s office for keeping their small town safe.
Ahead of the game starting at 5:30 p.m., there will be family games, such as obstacle courses, bounce houses, relay races, a dunk tank and more.
The event is free, but donations to benefit the Callahan Soccer Club and law enforcement nonprofits will be accepted.
