If you work in college football, you probably met D.J. Looney. That means you met someone unlike anyone else you’ve ever known. And when you heard he passed away this morning, at 31, you were crushed: https://t.co/mp2woFlIMB

Quick story on D.J. Looney. During 2-days in 2016, Coach Looney spotted me wearing Seahawks gear at @GeorgiaFootball scrimmage and made a beeline for me. “You got my boy J-Reed!”, he exclaimed with huge smile. I asked how he knew @1j_reed, who Seahawks just picked in ‘16 draft.
