On Friday night, Watertown native and fallen Boston Firefighter Ed Walsh will be honored at the Watertown High School football game.

Lt. Walsh died fighting a fire in the Back Bay in March. His funeral was held at St. Patrick’s Church in Watertown and thousands of firefighters from around the country came to pay tribute (see more here).

Other WHS sports teams have paid tribute to Walsh, who attended the high school, including the baseball and lacrosse teams.

The game will be at 7 p.m. on Oct. 10 at Victory Field, 40 Orchard St. in Watertown. The game against Melrose will also be senior night, where seniors on the football team and band will be recognized.
