Minnesota Vikings cornerback Antoine Winfield did something that not many of us could probably do. He played in last Sunday’s opener against the Jaguars just days after his brother was murdered in Ohio.
“Last Wednesday, Antoine Winfield’s brother was shot and killed in Akron, Ohio, according to two team sources. Anthony Travis, 30, was shot by an unknown person while standing outside a vehicle, according to police reports. He was hit with multiple gunshots and was pronounced dead at 12:29 a.m. Nobody has been arrested and Akron police are investigating it as a homicide,” wrote Scout.com.
Our prayers certainly go out to Winfield and his family at this time, I can’t imagine going through something so tragic.
