MOORE, Okla. (AP) -- The young victims of this week's tornado in Oklahoma are each being remembered in a special way -- for their soccer skills, their enthusiasm and their ability to light up a room.

Ten children were among the 24 victims of Monday's twister at Moore. Seven died while huddling within one of the city's elementary schools.

Sydney Angle had finally been named the MVP of a softball tournament this month and her teammates collected money for her family Wednesday. Sydney's sister made it out of the school, but the family home lost their home.

Kyle Davis was called "The Wall" for the way he played soccer, and JaNae Hornsby was called the life of the party.
