Cody's Story


Cody Barrrasse touched the lives of many before he was taken from us all too early. Whether it was playing football for Scranton Prep, pickup basketball with his friends, or watching sports on TV, Cody was always a competitor. He had a constant drive to succeed and better those around him. Shortly after his tragic death in April 2013, Cody’s friends and family wanted to find a way to remember him and carry on his legacy.
