SEC commissioner Greg Sankey issued a statement regarding the shocking deaths of Devin Willock and Chandler LeCroy, a player and staff member for Georgia football.
Willock and LeCroy were in a car accident with two others, who survived the wreck but sustained injuries.
“We join the University of Georgia community in mourning the loss of Devin Willock and and Chandler LeCroy,” Sankey said in the statement. “The Southeastern Conference family sends its condolences to the families, friends, teammates, classmates and everyone close to these young people who left us too soon.

Warren McClendon was the other player involved in the accident, but he needed just a few stitches in his forehead.
