Devin Willock, a redshirt sophomore on the University of Georgia football team, and Chandler LeCroy, a football recruiting officer, died in an unexpected car accident on Sunday.
So it was very sad to hear that two of the brightest stars at the school had suddenly left. Let’s take a quick look at what happened on Sunday that broke the Bulldogs’ hopes.
Georgia Ol Devin Willock, Recruiter Die in Car Crash
Reports say that the two died in a car crash early on Sunday, just a few hours after the Bulldogs had a long parade and a big ceremony to celebrate their second straight national championship.
Devin Willock and Chandler LeCroy weren’t the only ones hurt in the crash in Athens, south of the University of Georgia campus. Two other members of the team were also hurt.
Even though the other two members could not be identified at first, the school said that their conditions are stable. Sources say that the event happened around 2:45 a.m.
Georgia beat TCU by a score of 65-7 in the National Championship game on Saturday. This was a big win. They were so happy to have won that they had a parade and a ceremony.
Before they knew for sure who the two people were, the police said that a 21-year-old man and a 26-year-old woman both had minor injuries, but that the 26-year-old woman had serious injuries.
But after they were pronounced dead, their names were found out, and the Georgia university was crushed by the news.

Devin Willock Died on the Spot!
A 20-year-old university star of effluent died at the scene. The first investigation showed that a Ford Expedition “went off the road and hit two power lines and several trees.”
As the story comes to a close, it sounds like the car may have gotten out of control and hit the trees and power lines, killing everyone instantly. The driver of the car, Chandler LeCroy, was taken to the hospital after the accident, but the talented recruiting analyst for the Bulldogs died.
Kirby Smar, Georgia’s strong coach, said
“The deaths of Devin Willock and Chandler LeCroy have broken our hearts. Devin was great. He was happy, worked well with others, and was fun to coach. The people on our football team liked LeCroy’s drive and attitude. We’re sorry for their terrible loss and will help them in any way we can.”
