Just horrific news came in this week when the world woke up to yet another mass shooting in America.
This one hit the sports world after it was revealed that former NFL player Phillip Adams reportedly killed five people before taking his own life. The seventh round pick out of South Carolina State in 2010 played for several NFL teams, including the Falcons, 49ers, Jets, Patriots, Raiders and Seahawks.
Alonzo Adams, the father of Phillip, commented on what happened with his son.
“I can say he’s a good kid,” Alonzo told WCNC. “I think the football messed him up.”
“All I can say is we pray for the family. He used to be my doctor a long time ago. I know they were good folks down there. We’re gonna keep them in our prayers.”
Adams reportedly suffered two concussions during his football career.
Depending on where Adams shot himself, his brain will more than likely be tested to see if he suffered with CTE.
