The weekend was not without its share of bad news. An old football friend got stabbed inside the campus of the state university late last week while trying to defend his girlfriend against three robbers. He got stabbed in the chest and died instantly. He was supposed to be graduating in a few days.I always feel like I'm gonna cry thinking about it. he was one of those guys who didn't hesitate to make the first move to greet you when he saw you on the field or wherever. he was one of those undoubtedly nice guys with no ill intent for anybody. He will be buried wednesday morning and our football club is having an overnight prayer vigil in his hometown tuesday night. God, he was still so young.
I'm going to miss you on the field mervs, you were one hell of a player.
