The Wolf Sports Newsletter: June 9, 2024


This week’s Wolf Sports Weekly starts with horrible news.

 

Rest in Peace, Khyree Jackson

 

 

Vikings rookie cornerback Khyree Jackson and two friends, Isaiah Hazel and Anthony Lytton Jr., were killed in a car accident in Maryland over the weekend.

 

  • Investigators believe alcohol was a contributing circumstance for the woman that struck their vehicle, sending them off the road.
  • The Vikings said they are “devastated” by the news, and head coach Kevin O’Connell said in a statement that in their short time together “it was evident Khyree was going to develop into a tremendous professional football player, but what was more impressive was his desire to become the best person he could be for his family and those around him.”
  • Our thoughts and prayers are with Jackson, Hazel, and Lytton and their families and friends.
