Former Mississippi Valley State football player Ray Taylor Jr. shot and killed in Memphis, Tennessee

Ray Taylor Jr. a 24-year-old former pass rusher from Mississippi Valley State was gunned down in Memphis, Tennessee.

Memphis Police are still investigating what happened and there haven’t been any arrests. The sad thing is Taylor Jr. was a father. He leaves behind a three year old child.

Investigators said Taylor was shot and killed near Yellowood Cove Thursday night. They are planning a vigil for Ray tomorrow night.

We at NFL Draft Diamonds would like to share a little clip from Ray Taylor Jr. the defensive end who made several players in the Tennessee State game back in 2019. Check out these clips. R

He finished the 2019 season with 55 tackles, 11 tackles for loss, and 2.5 sacks. Rest in Peace Ray.
