Liam Newman, a Frenchtown 17-year-old and senior at Delaware Valley Regional High School, expresses his desire to go out by the river near his hometown, and work out with friends, as well as fellow members and coaches of the schools wrestling and lacrosse teams, in a New Years Day car accident that killed his children, have left them heistfully hurt.

We are devastated by the passing of our teammate and friend Liam," Delaware Valley Wrestling Coach Any Fitz told NJ Advance Media that "Our goals are always about the team rather than simply individuals on the mat." We circle the wagons to support our teammates and the Newman family itself in times like this."

Liam joined the team as a sophomore and wrestled at 215 pounds, according to Fitz, and the team intends to wear his favorite color, purple, at 7 p.m. on Thursday.

The donation looms over $65,000 as community members raise more than $50,000, as well as other efforts to support his family.

We have spoken of Liam each day in practice and will do a few things to remember Liam at our home matches this week, Fitz said. "We are also in awe of the entire [school] community in regard to how much love and support they have given the Newman family and the students of Delaware Valley," Fitz said.

According to New Jersey State Police Chief Alejandro Goez, the incident occurred on Route 513 South in Alexandria Township, at 5:29 a.m. on Jan. 1.

According to Goez, a Ford Explorer in the south on Rt. 513 left off the road to the right, struck a road sign, reversing, and struck a tree and guide rail during a preliminary investigation.

Liam, who was driving the vehicle, sustained fatal injuries, according to Goez.

Coach Andrew Niebuhr, head Varsity Boys Lacrosse coach, said Liam began playing the game during his freshman year in 2019. Niebuhr claimed that Liam played the position of midfield/attack, and he seemed to return in 2020, despite COVID-19 being the case during 2021.

We look forward to a return this spring. "Our community's support for the Newman family has been overwhelmingly positive and something makes me so proud to say that we are Del Val.'

(Ash) Shore and her partner Arthur Jablonski, his father Steven Newman, his maternal grandparents Philip and Lois Ash, his paternal grandparents William and Rosemay Newman, his brother Evan Newman, his two sisters Alexandra Shore and Daniella "Dani" Newman, his aunt Suzanne Newman and his uncle Lawrence Newman.
