Nashawn Brooks was a standout athlete as a wrestler and football player, and was attending Wagner College to play linebacker.
The 6000, 220 pound backer from Irvington, New Jersey was killed in a car accident last night, according to the Daily Voice.
Taylor Hill, 19, and Kamal Johnson, 18 — both of Newark and former dance majors at Arts High School — were passengers in a Cadillac sedan that crashed in the eastbound lanes of Route 22 Tuesday around 11:10 p.m., Acting Essex County Prosecutor Theodore N. Stephens, II, and Newark Public Safety Director Anthony F. Ambrose said. They were pronounced dead at the scene.
Nashawn Brooks, 20, of Irvington, was transported to University Hospital and pronounced pronounced dead just before noon Wednesday, Stephens and Ambrose said. Brooks was a former standout Irvington High School athlete who last year played football at Wagner.
This is so sad, I please ask that you keep the Brooks family in your thoughts and prayers.
