COLORADO SPRINGS – A local high school football team is taking to the field to honor fallen El Paso County Deputy Micah Flick.

The Lions football team at Colorado Springs Christians Schools (CSCS) is playing at the UCCS Mountain Lion Stadium Thursday to honor the fallen law enforcement officer, former player, and alumni. The school says it would like to honor Deputy Micah Flick and his family by doing a formal presentation for his wife Rachael, and children, Eliana and Levi.

The formal presentation will be led by current High School Principal Mason Young, who was Flick’s coach at the time.

The game is dedicated to the life and memory of an officer not forgotten. Deputy Flick played quarterback for the Lions and led the team to its first playoff game his senior year in high school.

Each team member will be wearing special decals with Flick’s number on the back of their helmets.

Additional law enforcement officers have been invited to attend the football game, including El Paso County Sheriff Bill Elder and Colorado Springs Police Department Chief Pete Carey. The ceremony is scheduled to start at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 13, with the game to follow.

Tickets for students and senior citizens are $4, and $5 for adults.
