It goes without saying, but this is obviously a huge tragedy. VanDyke was a young man getting ready to start a major chapter of his life.

According to the WRAL.com report, VanDyke had just started with the Eagles, and was just getting his college football career underway.

Now, it’s all been cut short due to a horrific act of violence. It’s hard to find the words to describe such a tragedy.

He was supposed to be an FCS football player. Instead, he’s been murdered. Hopefully, the police find the person responsible and they’re held accountable for their actions.

It’s a sad situation, and there’s no other way to describe it.
