For those that don't know, freshman walk on UCLA wide receiver Nick Pasquale was struck and killed by an automobile this past weekend in San Clemente. The young 20 year old was pronounced dead at the scene, a life so swiftly taken before his full collegiate football career could take flight.
You know, regardless of what school you go to, what rivalry is afoot, there is a moment of sadness when it comes to a young life being taken from us too soon. From what I've read in the papers and seen on the news, he was loved by his local high school community and embraced by the UCLA family. This tragedy brings real sadness to the CFB community.
Rest in Peace Nick, you have fought on as much as you could.
