Flag football tournament honors Logan Kushner

Clearwater, Fla. - Playing in a flag football tournament Jesse Jerziorowski and his childhood friends join hundreds of other, friends and strangers, in memory of Logan Kushner.

"I don't want anybody to go through what I have gone through or any of us at the field have gone through," said Jeriorowski.

Kushner's friends said they won't forget his smile or kind heart.

 "Logan literally knew more people than I thought was possible. he was best friends with everybody," said Sean Irwin.

 "He would have done anything for anybody out here," commented Alex Annis.

While these teens lost a close friend they've created a foundation with Logan's mom P.A. It is called "I'm Logan It."

"He never knew what was going to happen was going to happen to him," said his mom.

P.A lost her son to K2. He was only 19, an avid athlete and a student at Stetson when deputies said he tried the synthetic Marijuana and drowned. She wants the foundation to raise awareness.

"He was all about getting up and what are we going to do and it's about making each day and every moment count," his mom told ABC Action News.

Since Logan's death, Florida State law banned the drug's components, but authorities said manufacturers find new chemicals to use.

"I think they should just be done with it all," said Jerziorowski.

Right now there is a push to even out law nearly two dozen more chemicals linked to K2. Logan's friends and family plan on doing their part to keep teenagers and others safe.

"At first I didn't care because I didn't know anybody who was doing it, but after this happened it opened my mind to a whole different perspective that anything can happen at anytime," said Jerziorowski.
