A day of celebration for the Georgia football program ended in tragedy early Sunday morning.

Just hours after the Bulldogs celebrated their second straight national title with a championship parade in Athens, Georgia offensive lineman Devin Willock and recruiting staffer Chandler LeCroy were killed in a single-vehicle car accident at approximately 2:45 a.m. Sunday. Two other members of the football program were also injured in the crash and were listed in stable condition as of Sunday morning.

Willock, who started two games at right guard for the Bulldogs in 2022, was remembered Sunday morning for his kindness. His final post on Twitter featured him sharing a moment with a young Georgia fan after Saturday’s parade.

LeCroy, who had been a recruiting analyst for Georgia since May 2021, was described by Kirby Smart as “a valuable member of our football staff” who “brought an incredible attitude and energy every single day.”

Members of the Ohio State football program, including general manager Mark Pantoni, were among those who sent their condolences to Georgia on Sunday morning.
