Football is a competitive sport, especially in the Southeastern Conference, and teams want to win championships.
However, tragedy brings us together as people. The University of Georgia is mourning a week after capturing back-to-back College Football Playoff National Championships. According to WSBTV.com in Athens, Ga., Devin Willock (an offensive lineman) and Chandler Lecroy (a recruiting staff member) were killed in a car crash Sunday morning. The incident came hours after the Bulldogs celebrated its national championship with a parade. Willock was 20 years old while Lecroy was 24.
