Highland Park football team joins Bears at training camp originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

The Highland Park Giants high school football team visited Halas Hall to join the Chicago Bears for training camp on Wednesday.

The team also donated $80,000 to the Highland Park Community Foundation, and the NFL Foundation has matched that donation.

A mass shooting occurred during the July 4th parade, as a 21-year old shooter perched above on top of a building unloaded an assault rifle on the patrons below, killing seven in the incident.

The 21-year-old suspect, who grew up in the area, faces seven counts of first-degree murder with many more criminal charges to come, Lake County State’s Attorney Eric Rinehart said. The seven counts announced Tuesday would, if convicted, carry a mandatory sentence of life without parole, Rinehart said.

The players and coaches met with the kids after practice at training camp.
