Others Pitch in to Finish Scout Project of Pennsylvania Football Player Who Died

About 70 people worked this weekend to help finish an Eagle Scout project left incomplete after a Pittsburgh area teen died during football practice.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported Sunday the group finished improvements to Puckety United Presbyterian Church that had begun as 16-year-old Noah Cornuet's project.

The boy died Aug. 6 of a rare non-cancerous heart tumor. He'd already replaced mulch, set two military headstones and built a cross.

Volunteers told the paper they wanted to honor his memory and continue his tradition of helping others.

Their work included landscaping, repainting parking lines and spaces, and painting and installing a ramp to a shed.

His scoutmaster says Cornuet is expected to be honored with the Eagle rank this week.
