Three students were killed in the crash, including 18-year-old Christian Eubanks, another football player from Waukegan.

Bishop, also a student, was heading home when he came across the fiery wreckage in Riley, Indiana on Sunday morning.

"John had gotten himself basically out of the car. I helped pull him outside the woods. We went back and got Omarion," Bishop said.

A memorial has continued to grow at the crash site.
