Skyline High School lost an upcoming star football player to homicide this weekend. According to police records, Aaron Pryor was shot and killed on Sunday in the Melrose neighborhood in Oakland.
In 4 years I’ve lost 2 players and 1 coach to gun violence. Also 1 player who drowned. All superstars. All were going to the 11th grade. My player who was killed yesterday was shot over 15 times. My boys are hurting… I’m hurting…

Pryor was new to Skyline High and had a promising future. He wanted to be a superstar and was working at his craft daily. His coach said he even messaged him on Instagram telling his coach he was coming for a captain role on the team this year.
Aaron’s Mother Tiffany Winters made a Go Fund Me Page, and it has raised 1,530 dollars at this point. She wrote that his dream was to play in the NFL.
My son was tragically killed Sunday September 27th. Im so torn and hurt .I watched my mother lose my brother at 15 due to gun violence and now I have to lay my 16 year old son to rest. HE HAD DREAMS Of going to the NFL and being a star athlete and some human robbed me of my prize possession. I will never be the same.
I please ask that you pray for the family. Tiffany I am sorry for your loss. I ask the Lord to bless you in this tough time. Please say a pray for the family today.
