Family of Fallen Deputy Taking Donations Today

Donations will be collected Saturday to go towards the son of a Watauga County Deputy who was killed in the line of duty. William Mast was fatally shot the night of July 25 while responding to a police call outside of Boone.

All of the proceeds raised today will go into a scholarship fund for the deputy's son, born less than a month after his death. Donations will be collected at Appalachian State's Kidd Brewer Stadium during the football game, where more than 12 friends of the family will volunteer to collect the money.

Tonight's game starts at 6:30.
