Jaz Granderson and myself became close because he wanted to play in the NFL so bad. I worked so hard to help with anything I could. He had recently landed a position at De Smet Jesuit High School before getting shot in cold blood during a car jacking.
Well today, Granderson may have not won the Super Bowl, but his family has some closure. Floyd Barber a 23 year old pled guilty to four counts, including using a firearm in a carjacking which resulted in the death of our friend.
Barber was involved in multiple carjackings in 2017 according to reports, but Granderson was killed for his Jeep Grand Cherokee. I please ask that you keep the Granderson family in your prayers, and please pray that Mr. Barber finds the Lord in that prison cell.
