"We're playing in memory of David Apperson".

For friends and family of Apperson, Sunday brings a painful reminder of what they lost a year ago, when a deadly earthquake hit Haiti and shook their world when it claimed his life.

Apperson's father-in-law, John Scarboro put together the first annual David Apperson Memorial Super Bowl tournament in his son in law's honor.

"He was a fantastic guy. Anybody he met, no matter what the class the person was, low class or high class, they were all the same to him. He loved everybody," said Scarboro.

It's that spirit that is inspiring this community to take their best shot at helping high school seniors from Berrien, Lanier and Cook counties pay for college. Scarboro says they will offer 2-3 $1,000 scholarships for each high school in the counties.

70 sponsors chipped into contribute and 108 golfers showed up to play in the tournament, something friends say shows what kind of person Apperson was.

"Just his spirit, he was always smiling and in such a great mood," said Laura Mathis.

Scarboro says he and Apperson played Golf a couple of times a week and it's going to be something he will miss but the game is a great way to honor Apperson.
