What a tragic week it's been for college football.
First, we have the shocking news about Washington State quarterback Tyler Hilinski. Now, we have another death in the family.
Winston-Salem State University football player Najee Baker was killed during an incident at a Wake Forest campus party.

It's hard to come up with words to describe just how awful this is.
Baker, who was a red-shirt football player at WSSU, was shot and killed at a kickoff party for the semester. He was just 21 years old.
The entire WSSU community is grieving at this time and mourning his loss, especially his teammates.

Thoughts and prayers go out to Baker's friends and family.
