A similar event happened to one of our local university players. He had returned to his home town to attend the funeral of a family. member. He was a fine young man.
I echo your sending thoughts and prayers to his family and friends.

Denver Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams was shot and killed in a drive-by shooting early Monday, just hours after his team was eliminated from the NFL playoff race.
Williams, 24, and two others were riding in a white stretch Hummer limousine in downtown Denver when they came under fire, a little after 2 a.m. MT.
As many as a dozen bullet holes were visible on the driver's side of the vehicle, The Associated Press reported.
The limo, which sat in a downtown snowbank as police looked for clues, had one window blown out while four others had bullet holes.
Team spokesman Jim Saccomano told AP that police had confirmed Williams had been killed.
"All of us are devastated by this tragedy," Broncos owner Pat Bowlen said in a statement.
My thoughts & prayers go out to his friends & family
