As John touched on earlier, the house belonging to Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray and linebacker Christian Robinson was egged and TP’d over the weekend — perhaps as a result of the Bulldogs’ 35-7 loss to South Carolina last Saturday.
On Sunday morning, Robinson posted the following message on his Twitter account:
“Still get to be a hero this morning to little kids at Athens Church. There are more important things in life than wins and loses [emphasis added].”
No one likely understands that last sentiment more than Murray right now.
Murray posted on his own Twitter account yesterday “Probably the worst 12 hours of my life but I know my family will push through. Keep my dad in your prayers please.” It’s being reported that Murray’s father has been diagnosed with thyroid cancer.
“Papa Murray is the strongest man I know,” Murray continued this morning on his social media page. “This morning is the first step to recovery. Praying God looks over him and the surgeons.”
It’s been a tough several days for Murray to be sure. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family as we’re reminded once again that there’s a human being underneath the helmet and pads.
