According to Saturday Tradition, Louisville football coach Scott Satterfield released a statement about the tragedy and said, “We are deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Dexter Rentz. He was a great young man who had a contagious personality, and was able to light up a room with his smile. He was a great kid to be around and he will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Rentz family during this extremely difficult time.”

This is obviously a huge tragedy, and there’s no other way to describe it. It’s just a brutal and heartbreaking tragedy.

Rentz should be preparing to play college football in the fall for the Cardinals. Instead, it was all snatched away from him as a teenager.

People aren’t supposed to die in such senseless and horrific ways. He had his entire life ahead of him and a promising career at Louisville.

Now, we’ll never know what the future held for Rentz. Hopefully, the person responsible for this horrible act is found and held responsible.
