Oh my goodness how sad. He was a wonderful human being with such a kind heart. He loved his vol family & fans. I remember riding back on a late bus after the game & him & Jon Poe was on that bus. We all just talked & talked. What a very sad day & my prayers go out to his family & friends. Rip ParysJulie Christian wrote
This is so sad. He was an amazing player and young man. I personally got to meet him on Campus after a game. We said hey, he asked our names and shook our hands and that was it. A few weeks later we saw him again and I said his name. He turned around and said hey and called me by name. He gave a couple of high fives and that was it.Jean-Pierre Cruze wrote
Yes so sad for his family and the VOL Nation! He was one of our favorites! Jesus has welcomed this young man home…we who are believers will see him again soon!
