CORPUS CHRISTI - The Haas Middle School Warriors football team played for the first time last night since the death of teammate Cameron Espinosa.
Cameron was playing in a game 2 weeks ago on the Haas field when he was bitten by ants and had a severe allergic reaction that eventually claimed his life.
Wednesday's game started with a moment of silence for #66.
Since his death, CCISD has moved all middle school games to Cabaniss Field or Buc Stadium. Another change already in place - there was an medic crew on scene in case anyone was injured.
One mother we talked with says the changes are great, but said it shouldn't have taken someone dying for the school district to make sure there's an ambulance at all games.
"Now we know that our kids are safe, but unfortunately for the Espinosa family it came a little bit too late. Kids are our priority, our kids are our future now. Our kids' safety is more important. That should have been done a long time ago," said Sandra Sauceda.
The district has hired an independent auditor to investigate what happened the night those ants attacked Cameron. The report should be complete by mid-October.
