Former Cashton football standout dies from injuries in welding accident

CASHTON, WI (WTAQ) - A former high school football standout in western Wisconsin died on Saturday -- the day he was supposed to get married. 

22-year-old Jacob Gronemus of Cashton was injured in a welding accident last Tuesday, with burns over 75 percent of his body. He died late Saturday night -- one night after he was honored at his alma mater's high school football game. 

Cashton players wore Gronemus' number 32 on their helmets. And although Cashton beat Bangor 20-16, the final on the scoreboard read 32-32 as players from both teams gathered for a prayer. 

T-shirts were sold to raise money for the Gronemus family. 

Jacob graduated from Cashton in 2010. His funeral will be held next Saturday in Middle Ridge.
