"Tragically, Dalton State assistant basketball coach, John Redman and his fiancé, Brittany Huber, were involved in a serious car accident last night on the way to their wedding this weekend in Mobile, AL. Brittany passed away on impact. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family at this impossibly hard time. She was an amazing person who was loved by all who met and knew her.
