SIU To Honor Hero Teacher Who Stopped School Shooting


The Illinois man who’s been called a “hero” for his efforts in taking down a school shooter will be honored at his alma mater.

Southern Illinois University named Jason Seaman its Grand Marshal for homecoming, which is set for Oct. 20th.  Seaman, a Mahomet, native tackled the shooter who opened fire at Noblesville West Middle School in Indiana last month.  He was shot three times, but has since recovered.

Seaman played football for Southern Illinois from 2007 – 2010.
