Some things are more important than football. Former Alabama linebacker and current Baltimore Ravens star C.J. Mosley showed that today, when he tweeted out a picture of his cleats that featured the hashtags #SECFamily and #RIPJakell. Mosley wrote them on in marker to honor Auburn HB Jakell Mitchell, who was shot and killed earlier today. Check them out:

This isn’t a huge, over the top gesture by Mosley, but it’s still a really nice and subtle way to pay homage to a person who passed away far too soon.
Mitchell was shot outside of an apartment complex early this morning. The authorities recently made an arrest and charged a 22-year-old Alabama man with murdering Mitchell.
