The Washington Commanders wide receiver sent a heartfelt message for his friend, saying he was devastated after hearing the news of his death. He also sent him a message that he would like to meet up in the end zone in heaven.
“Devastated is the only word that comes to mind.” wrote Terry McLaurin. “Dwayne always had a smile on his face and a personality that was 1 on 1. We spoke on the night we were both drafted about how hopeful we were for our future and how excited we were to be able to play and compete together again. I thank God for the memories we shared and the conversations we had. I will miss her so much.”
McLaurin thanked the Almighty for all the memories they shared during their time together on the franchise. The 26-year-old also praised Dwayne for being an exceptionally good football player who can turn a game around in minutes.
“He was a man trying to be the best version of himself, just like all of us.” wrote McLaurin. “He was looking forward to continuing to fight for his dream and I know, as do those closest to him, that his best years on and off the field were still ahead of him.”
“He was more than a phenomenal football player who could turn it like I’ve never seen to this day. He was a guy who wanted to win over those around him and see them succeed. He was a man of God and often spoke of his faith. A beloved son, brother, husband, friend and teammate.”
“I am heartbroken and pray he knew how much he was loved. How much I loved him. I would have given anything to see him win. His legacy on this earth will be felt forever because of the way he lived his life and the way he influenced everyone he came in contact with. Until we meet again brother. Reserve me a spot in that big end zone in the sky where we’ll party again one day.”
