Daniel Covington Shot And Killed By Former UofL Baseball Player

 Wave 3, reports former Louisville baseball player Isaiah Howes, shot and killed Daniel Covington, after an altercation.

This is without a doubt the most difficult story, I have had to cover, since starting the Cardinal Connect blog. As expected, this has been very hard on the Cardinal football family.

“We are all shocked and deeply saddened to learn of this tragic event,” Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich said. “It is very painful to see this happen to a member of our athletic family. We want to extend our deepest sympathies to Daniel’s family and friends.”

Since graduating from Louisville last year, Daniel has been working in Louisville and recently spent time at Ikei Sports Performance, In Arizona. Covington, had NFL aspirations and hoped to earn an tryout.

Cardinal fans, please keep the Covington family and the Louisville football program in your thoughts and prayers.
