It’s been awesome to see all of these people who play a high level of sports pay tribute to Tate Myre, the star football player at Oxford high school who was shot and killed while attempting to disarm school shooter Ethan Crumbley.
Those names, for all those will never be forgotten and they’re in our hearts and prayers, and all the families and not to mention all those that were affected by all of this.
The classmates, the brothers and sisters, the cousins, the teachers, everybody. Coaches.”
Lions quarterback Jared Goff also added:
“Sometimes special things happen in special circumstances and I think you saw that yesterday what Michigan did against Iowa and then us today getting our first win.
You never hope for a tragedy like this, but you hope to be a light for those people and a positive thing that they can have fun watching today.
I hope that they were all watching today and were able to enjoy that win and we can take their minds off it for whatever it may be, three hours.
And I think anytime that we can do that, it’s a lot bigger than us and I think today was one of those special circumstances that we were able to rise to the occasion and make something special happen.”
