ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) -

    A former Rochester athlete will never be forgotten.
    Tuesday evening, the Lourdes High School Baseball team honored Adam Ellingson at their Senior Night game.
    Adam was a 2015 graduate of Lourdes High School and was on a baseball scholarship at Minnesota State University - Mankato.
    He passed away this January from the stomach flu, complicated by cardiac arrest.
    Before the first pitch, a ceremony was held in his honor including a song and a moment of silence.
    A painting of Adam was also on display.
    His parents say  they are incredibly grateful for the outpouring of support.
"We miss him so much every day," Dave Ellingson, Adam's father, said. "He was a wonderful young man. He touched a lot of people's lives. I think for us it's been such an emotional roller-coaster the last three months. This community that we are part of is unbelievable. In a tragic time like this we keep going forward every day because of them."
