That is terrible to hear. I’ve watched Nashawn wrestle a number of times. The Verona athletics community sends our condolences to Irvington and the Brooks family.

I did not have the pleasure of meeting him; however, my son and he were teammates. He talked about “Brooks” and what a good man he was on and off the field. Prayers to Nashawn’s family, to his football family and all in the Wagner Community. He was loved and will be missed! 🙏🏻
