LISBON, Iowa — Scott Tibbetts, the brother of slain Iowa woman Mollie Tibbetts, nearly didn’t play in Brooklyn-Guernsey-Malcom High School’s season opener on Friday.

He decided a day before the game, on Thursday, that he would take the field. 

Tibbetts started at quarterback and threw two touchdowns and ran for another in BGM’s 35-24 victory over Lisbon. Tibbetts, a senior on the team, also recovered a late onside kick to help seal the victory for the Bears. 

Mollie Tibbetts’ July 18 abduction and death became a national story. The funeral for the 20-year-old University of Iowa student will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday in her hometown of Brooklyn. 

Cristhian Bahena Rivera, 24, has been charged with first-degree murder in her death.
