Toledo is doing what it can for those close to one of its fallen football players.
According to reports coming out of the area Wednesday, a man was shot dead following an argument outside of a pizza joint in the city. It was subsequently confirmed that the victim was Rockets defensive lineman Jahneil Douglas.
“The University and all of Rocket Nation mourn the death of junior football player Jahneil Douglas, who was shot in an incident in Toledo last night,” UT’s athletic department wrote in a tweet.
Subsequent to that, Toledo head coach Jason Candle issued his own statement on the 22-year-old Douglas’ death.
