Charles Royston Jr. had just returned back home to Minnesota to take care of his ailing mother. Royston was quite the high school football player in Minnesota and was taking the JUCO route to get to a major University, but that was stop short this past week.
Shortly before 11 p.m. on Jan. 14, officers were called to a report of shots fired in the area of N. 35th and Girard avenues. When they arrived, they found Royston, 21, in a nearby alley with gunshot wounds, police said. Another victim from the shooting showed up later at a hospital.
Royston helped lift the Minneapolis North team to win the school’s first state football title in 2016. After graduation, he left to play football at a junior college in North Dakota for North Dakota State College of Science.
He played in ten games, and to honor him, we wanted to share some of his game film. Royston Jr. was a running back/wide receiver and defensive back at NDSCS. The star high school running back will be missed.
We at NFL Draft Diamonds would ask that you please consider his family in your prayers tonight. Rest in Peace Charles. Gone too soon.
