Jim Bell gave everything he had to the Elizabethtown Area Youth Football league. His life was devoted to the league, which began its 53rd year Thursday night.
Bell began coaching in the league in 1995 and became a head coach in 2000. He led the Lions to the league’s title in 2006.
Before the start of what would have been his 15th season, and the day before the EAYF was to hold tryouts, Bell suffered a heart attack and passed away. He was 42.
