Braxston Banks/Children's Fund
We lost a kind and gentle soul on Wednesday, March 8th when Braxston Banks (ND '90) passed away suddenly. He was a star running back at Notre Dame and played on the 1988 ND National Championship team. More than anything, Braxston adored his three beautiful children-- Khabyl, Khorin and Storm. In lieu of flowers, please show your love by contributing to a scholarship and education fund for his children. In his absence, we embrace and lift up his kids and know that through them, his spirit lives on. On behalf of his mother, Priscilla, and sister, Nicole, peace and blessings and thank you for your generosity.

Braxston's homegoing service on Saturday, March 18th was memorable and moving-- just the way he would have wanted it. His Notre Dame football teammates and former ND Coach George Stewart rallied around his kids to show their love and support. Patrick Terrell, George Streeter, Ricky Watters and Michael Stonebreaker-- all great Notre Dame men-- were there. Here are a few photos from that special day along with a photo of Braxston, his mother, Priscilla, and the children (Khabyl, Storm and Khorin).
The children are now 15, 16 and 17 so college and tuition bills are around the corner. Thank you to all who have contributed to the education fund for B's kids. Please encourage your friends to take a moment to make a special gift in memory of Braxston.
Pictured below: Coach George Stewart, Patrick Terrell, George Streeter, Storm Banks (Braxston's son), Ricky Watters and Michael Stonebreaker. As you might imagine, Storm plays football just like his dad. At 15, he is already 6'3". With a name like Storm Banks and his dad's athletic talent, he is destined for greatness!
