Remembering Sheila Hopkins

Posted: Updated:
MERCER COUNTY, WV -

Sheila Hopkins, from Bluefield, WV., was known for many reasons. Students say she was an outgoing person who was dedicated and showed great character. Hopkins had a love for the game of basketball and played for U. C. Beckley. But her basketball career all started in Bluefield, where she was the captain last year on her high school basketball team.

Hopkins touched the lives of many people and her high school had an emotional moment of silence before tonight's game vs Mount View. I caught up with a family friend and he had nothing but great things to say about her.

"She's just a great person and she's going to be remembered for a very long time."

The Bluefield Beavers dedicated the game to Hopkins and played with emotion and fight. They won the game 55-27.
