On this date in 1970, the team plane for the Marshall University Football team crashed, killing all on board. All but 3 members of the team (who for various reasons, did not make the trip) perished in the crash. 

In addition to the 37 players who died on that plane, 8 coaches (including the school's athletic director), 25 boosters, and 5 crew members were all killed.
