Buffs’ Mike Sanford has Virginia on his thoughts, prayers – BuffZone.com

As he prepares his own team for a football game this week, Colorado interim head coach Mike Sanford has the Virginia Cavaliers on his thoughts and prayers.

Three members of the Virginia soccer team were shot dead in Charlottesville, Virginia late Sunday night. Former football player Christopher Jones Jr. was arrested as a suspect.

Current players Lavel Davis Jr., Devin Chandler, and D’Sean Perry were killed. Two other Virginia students, including football player Mike Hollins, were injured.

Opening his weekly news briefing on Tuesday, Sanford said, “Most of all, I wanted to talk about sending our condolences as a program to Charlottesville and to the families, as well as to the football program, the athletic department, and the faculty of the University of Virginia. We had the opportunity to talk about it as a team in our team meeting this morning. Absolutely an atrocity.”
