Tray Walker, the Ravens cornerback who lost his life after he collided with an SUV on March 17 while riding on his dirt bike, was laid to rest on Saturday, March 26.
The 23-year-old athlete was sent on to glory in grand style too.
Hundreds joined family and friends at the 93rd Street Community Baptist Church in northwest Miami church for his Homegoing Celebration, where members of the Baltimore Ravens and coaches were among those who spoke admirably of the man who head coach John Harbaugh said, had a smile that “could light up a room.” The coach told stories about Walker, a Miami native, who was a dedicated learner of the playbook and the NFL game; even though adjusting to the frigid Maryland winter wasn’t easy.
The untimely passing of this young athlete leaves many hearts broken. Walker collided with a Ford Escape driven by 62-year-old Donzetta Coaxum at approximately 7:50 p.m. on March 17. He is said to have been wearing dark clothing and did not have a helmet on.
Walker was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital, but died the next day.
