Dallas Cowboys star pass rusher DeMarcus Lawrence is in mourning after the tragic death of former Boise State teammate Greg Grimes.
Grimes was reportedly killed as a shooting broke out outside of a Sacramento night club in the early hours of July 4.
Taking to Twitter, Lawrence released a statement on the passing of his college mentor.
"We lost my brother Greg Grimes this past weekend to an act of senseless gun violence," the two-time Pro Bowler said. "My family and I hurt for his family and son Ace, for his friends & former teammates, & especially for the young men he no longer gets to mentor like he mentored me when I got to Boise."
Grimes played for the Broncos from 2008-2012.
After his playing days, he returned to his native Sacramento to work as an assistant football coach at Inderkum High School. Serving as a "great role model" in the words of his friends, family and co-workers.
Greg Grimes was just 31-years-old.
