Football teams, fans in Virginia pay powerful tributes to slain journalists

By

Adam Ward, one of two journalists slain in Virginia this week, loved shooting high school sports. He was a staple of WDBJ’s Friday Football Extra and was scheduled to shoot two high school games Friday night.

The hashtag #FFE is attached to a lot of tweets with score updates and more on Friday nights in the Roanoke area. On this Friday night, though, #FFE also included photos and tributes from around the region to Ward and WBDJ colleague Alison Parker.

Here are some of the powerful images:
