The death of Warren Hills High School 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 also placed a #18 (Evan’s uniform number) sticker on his guitar during the band’s concert in the United Arab Emirates.

Bon Jovi is a big football fan.  His son Jesse Bonjiovi, who played at Poly Prep Country Day in Brooklyn, New York, is a junior walk-on cornerback at Notre Dame.
