He shared a heartbreaking message on social media.
‘Before today’s game, I got another terrible phone call that tested positive for COVID. I will immediately isolate and follow any protocol. I pray every day that this virus nightmare will subside, and I ask everyone to continue to take it seriously by taking all necessary precautions. “It breaks my heart that my family, and especially my father and sister, continue to suffer from the anxiety that comes with this diagnosis, as we know all too well what the end result may be. To my niece and nephew … I promise you I won’t end up in a box next to Grandma and hit that. ‘
