There is a tribute post up on RBR. Many of us here are banned from commenting on RBR, but might want to offer some sentiments to our Rivals.
My heart goes out to the Douglas family, to his friends and teammates. My stomach went into knots when I read the news.
Nick Saban had immensely classy words about his formal player (crediting Izzy Gould's article linked above)
It is a tragedy anytime you lose someone close to you and even more so when it is a member of your family," Alabama coach Nick Saban said in a statement. "Aaron was a part of our family and always will be a part of our family at Alabama. He was an outstanding young man and we were excited about what he had accomplished as a player and a person in the short time he was with us.
"Our thoughts and prayers go out to his parents, David and Karla, who are two of the best people you will ever meet and the love they had for their son was something very special. As a father, there is nothing we can say to describe the loss of a son. Our Alabama family has sustained a tragic loss and the Alabama family is grieving that loss. We will be here to support Aaron's family in any way we can."
These sentiments were expressed over at RBR and I will echo them here, please use this space to offer condolences and not speculation....This young man was taken from his family at a very early age.
