ICYMI – It was a very sad day for the University of Georgia, its fans, and family members.
The team was only days away from winning its second consecutive national championship.
It should’ve been a time of joy.
Instead, the entire university ended up mourning the loss of two members of the football program.
Devin Willock and Chandler LeCroy were killed in a car accident in Athens, GA one early Sunday morning.
They were two of four people in an SUV that appears to have drifted off the road, hitting two light poles and numerous trees.
LeCroy was believed to have been driving at the time, with Willock in the passenger seat.
The other two team members that were the vehicle were injured but survived the accident.
Coach Kirby Smart stated, “We are all heartbroken and devastated with the loss of Devin Willock and Chandler LeCroy.
“Devin was an outstanding young man in every way and was always smiling.
“He was a great teammate and a joy to coach.
“Chandler was a valuable member of our football staff and brought an incredible attitude and energy every single day.
“We grieve with their families for this tragic loss and will support them in every way possible.”
