NFL Draft

23 year old man pleads guilty to killing former UNI football player

My friend Jaz Granderson and his family finally find some peace today. Mr. Floyd Barber you took a good man, a man who was dedicated to helping young kids learn the game of football.  I please ask the Lord to forgive you.

Jaz Granderson and myself became close because he wanted to play in the NFL so bad. I worked so hard to help with anything I could. He had recently landed a position at De Smet Jesuit High School before getting shot in cold blood during a car jacking.

Well today, Granderson may have not won the Super Bowl, but his family has some closure.  Floyd Barber a 23 year old pled guilty to four counts, including using a firearm in a carjacking which resulted in the death of our friend.

Barber was involved in multiple carjackings in 2017 according to reports, but Granderson was killed for his Jeep Grand Cherokee. I please ask that you keep the Granderson family in your prayers, and please pray that Mr. Barber finds the Lord in that prison cell.
