USM QB Lost Mother Day of Our Game

SunHerald: A difficult year for a Southern Miss quarterback got much tougher

Quote

HATTIESBURG 
A tough year for Southern Miss quarterback Kwadra Griggs got much more difficult this past weekend.

Griggs’ mother died Saturday morning prior to the team’s road game at North Texas, USM head coach Jay Hopson said on Monday during his weekly press conference.

“Kwadra has been through a lot,” Hopson said. “His mother passed away Saturday morning. That’s tough on a young man.”

Hopson said that Griggs found out at about 9 a.m. on Saturday that his mother had died. The game kicked off at 1:30 p.m.

As much as we love North Texas football it's always good to keep it in perspective.

Good grief. How awful. Feeling very bad for him. Surprised he even played. I know it might be an outlet for some but I don't think I would be capable.

Perspective is correct.  Makes me feel pretty shallow for some of my feelings regarding the game.   Thoughts and prayers for this young man and his family.  So sad.

That would explain his rough outing late in the 3rd quarter.

I'm sure coach Hopson checked with him first to see if he wanted to play... and I bet, as a competitor, he said yes.  But I cannot imagine playing with that hanging over me...  Not being there to say goodbye.

May God grant peace to his family during this tough time.
