Who was Christian Eubanks ?

Two freshmen members of the Indiana State University football team were among three students killed in a weekend crash, authorities said Monday.

One of those killed was former Warren Township High School student Christian Eubanks.

“He was the most amazing young man I have ever met,” said Rhonda Eubanks, the victim’s mother. “He didn’t realize how smart he was. He was so humble and sincere.”

He quickly became a rising football star, and his high school coach said he had a bright future ahead of him.

“A life cut short that he had so much potential. He still had so much ahead of him, so much life to live,” said Bryan McNulty, Warren Township High School football coach. “He played two years in the COVID season. Then he played last year for us. Extremely smart player.”

The sheriff’s department did not say who was driving or release additional details about the circumstances of the crash.

“He dreamed, he lived soccer. He used to sleep with a soccer ball under his arm,” Rhonda said. “He loved so deeply, and when he gave a hug, he did it with such passion that you could feel the love pouring out of his arms.”

It’s McNulty’s worst fear. He molds his students into soccer players for the future, but suddenly learns that one’s life has been ripped away.

“The last conversation I had with him was actually via text, and he was thanking us someone for the ways we pushed him and things like that and how he’s helping him at Indiana State. Everybody thought he had a bright future, and I think it had. Now it’s been tragically cut short,” McNulty said.

Eubanks was starting his freshman year at Indiana State University as a linebacker for the football team.

“Our Indiana State University community is mourning the loss of life and directing our sincere attention to the families of those recovering from this tragedy,” said Indiana State University President Deborah Curtis.

It was early Sunday morning when McNulty says the 18-year-old was in a car with friends, driving back to his Terra Haute campus from Indiana University Bloomington. That’s when sheriff’s deputies said the car left the road in Riley, crashed into a tree and was engulfed in flames.

Victims

Eubanks was one of three students killed. One of the other victims was his teammate, Caleb VanHooser.

“There’s no question that part will be missing. This is a great time to come together as one Sycamore family,” said Indiana State University head football coach Curt Mallory.

Two other men were taken to the hospital, including his other teammate, 19-year-old rookie linebacker John Moore of Wheaton. The 2021 graduate of St. Francis High School is still hospitalized. He and the other survivor are in serious condition.

“He has a long road to recovery, but I want him and his family to know that St. Francis and our football family are here to help in any way we can,” said Bob McMillen, principal of St. Francis High. School. football coach.

McNulty said he is “in complete disbelief that this could happen.”

Those who played Eubanks at Gurnee were left with the same angst.

“It hurts me to know because he was great to me. I always talked to him in gym class. He was a great guy,” said Sam Sellers, a senior at Warren Township High School.

Hundreds of students and others gathered outside the university’s football stadium last night to honor the victims of the crash.

“He was a great addition on and off the field. Just a great guy. It sucks that he’s gone,” said Johnathan Niedospial, another high school senior.

The driver was killed in the crash, but authorities have not said which victim was behind the wheel.

“He was a preferred walk-in at Indiana State and he wanted to show that he could do it there, and he was on the right track … We’ll never let the memory of him fade,” McNulty said. “He will always be a part of our program. He will always be a part of me as a coach. This will be something that he will never … I don’t think he will get over it.”

Warren Township High School’s first home football game of the season is on Friday. McNulty said he plans to hold a moment of silence for Eubanks.
