New Braunfels student dies after school fight

Posted: Updated:

A New Braunfels-area sophomore has passed away after being involved in a fight at school.

The life story of Logan Davidson will be missing decades of potential memories.

"He had his whole life in front of him. He was looking forward to driving his mom's '57 Chevy when he gets his license in the next couple of weeks," said his uncle, Mitch Davidson.

The 15 year-old passed away after being beaten during a school fight.

"I just never thought it would be that serious," said Mayra Avila, a sophomore at Canyon High School.

She says most of the students are still in shock.

"I've known him since elementary school," added Mayra.

Davidson and another 15-year-old sophomore got into a fight Tuesday at Canyon High School.

Davidson was reportedly knocked unconscious.

"It's something that we don't want to happen to our children. The only thing left is to talk to them, educate them. We want them not to fight and to behave well," said Canyon High School parent, Jorge Avila.

He says it makes him nervous for his sons and Mayra.

"I knew the other kid," added Mayra. "I'm pretty sure that the other kid didn't mean...for it to go that far."

"Obviously, it was a traumatic injury. It cost him his life," said Mitch. "I know Logan would be amazed. There's literally thousands and thousands of people that are emailing us, telling us how much they love him and that the praying for him."

A local group of moms, with more than 5,000 members, are putting red and white ribbons around the trunks of trees in town to honor Logan's memory.

"It's a testament to what a fine young man he was," added Mitch.

The other student involved was taken into custody and charged with aggravated assault, but authorities have not said if the charges will be upgraded.

"Teachers were there, responded quickly," said Comal ISD Superintendent, Andrew Kim. "We don't believe that this is a case of anything, but an isolated situation."

Still, some students say it was a case of bullying that could have been avoided.

Kim said, "We're going to get different variations of the stories."

Some say what did happen was senseless.

"We don't get it. I don't get it," said Mitch.

Two families have been changed forever...because of a high school fight.

"We're devastated," added Mitch. "We're in early life. There's nothing after this for Logan and I think that's the most saddest thing there is."

Both boys' families are left struggling...waiting for answers.
