The sports world mourned the tragic passing of USC football great and future NFL Hall-of-Famer Junior Seau on Wednesday. The legendary linebacker was found dead in his home in Oceanside, California from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest.
Seau was a beloved figure in southern California and around the league. The outpouring of emotion in the wake of his death stands as a moving testament to that fact.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Seau's family and friends.
