Former Tennessee State RB Trabis Ward that declared early for the NFL Draft shot and killed in Florida

Trabis Ward killed
Former Tennessee State running back Trabis Ward was shot and killed in Florida on Saturday.

Trabis Ward was one of the best college football players in his junior year for Tennessee State. He decided to leave college early and declared for the 2013 NFL Draft. The former FCS talent rushed for 1,422 yards and 15 touchdowns on 4.6 yards per carry. Ward never really landed on a team, and it is super unfortunate.

Well, we are learning that Ward was killed in a shooting in Florida.

Detectives there say an unidentified suspect shot Trabis Ward, 31, in the parking lot of a liquor store early Saturday morning.

Ward played as a running back for TSU from 2009 to 2012.

Trabis is the second small schooler that was shot this weekend. Both he and Derywn Lauderdale were shot and killed over the weekend. Small School Football players are in the news more lately for losing their lives, and it is getting frustrating.

Please pray for Ward’s family.
