Rizzo, who graduated from the high school in 2007, donated over $150,000 to help purchase lights for the field, according to the Sun Sentinel, and unveiled the lights on Monday night at the stadium:
“Proud of where I came from and honored to be a part of the new lights at MSD,” Rizzo said in a tweet. “Shout out to my brother Johnny who played a huge part in making this happen and everyone else who worked tirelessly to make this dream a reality.”
After a 2018 shooting left 17 people dead at the school, Rizzo delivered an emotional speech at a candlelight vigil honoring the victims. Since then he has worked to raise money for the school’s sports teams and the school itself, raising thousands of dollars in the process.
