CBS4 spoke with the family Sunday.

They say police still haven’t said what led to the collision.

They know the students in the other car are still hospitalized.

On Friday — just hours after their teammate’s death — the Poudre High team lost a playoff game to Pomona High School.

The family has set up a GoFundMe to help with funeral expenses.
