Wayne Jones III’s parents want to know if coaches ignored warnings from their son and were too slow to react during the emergency.
Jones’ parents say after their son died, they started hearing directly from football players who told them the university may be trying to cover up what really happened. Now, the family says they want to know the truth.
“It’s the worst feeling you can imagine, losing a child,” said father Wayne Jones II.
Three weeks have passed and still the parents of the 19-year-old freshman walk-on are gripped with grief.
“The doctor, when she came in, she held both of my hands. She said, ‘I got bad news. He didn’t make it.’ And that’s the worst feeling I ever got – I ever had – in my whole life,” Wayne Jones II said.
