The death of Warren Hills (N.J.) Regional quarterback Evan Murray has touched New Jersey rocker Jon Bon Jovi, who sent a video message to the team that was posted on YouTube.
Bon Jovi is a big football fan. His son Jesse Bonjiovi, who played at Poly Prep Country Day in Brooklyn, N.Y., is a junior walk-on cornerback at Notre Dame.
