Michigan State basketball star Cassius Winston and his family suffered a tragic loss Saturday night when Winston’s brother Zachary was struck and killed by an Amtrak train in Albion, Michigan.
Winston, a 19-year old student at Albion College, was a sophomore on the men’s basketball team.
Albion College president Mauri Ditzler issued a statement Sunday morning. The statement didn’t name Winston.
“Last night, our family lost a student. And as families do in difficult times, we must come together to mourn and to embrace one another. We have been in close contact with the student’s family and are doing everything we can to support them. In accordance with the family’s wishes, we are not sharing a name or details at this time. Please keep the family close in your heart. We plan to offer grief counseling to our community and will be sharing details later today.”
If it crosses your mind today, say a prayer for Cassius Winston and his family.
