Twyon Martin had a day off Wednesday though designed to do some work in his purpose as a executive of a dwindle football joining in East Hampton.

Martin, a 2011 UConn connoisseur and former defensive lineman on a football group underneath Randy Edsall, and former teammate Andre Dixon were headed to a assembly when Martin began scrolling by Facebook and saw reports of an active shooter during his former high propagandize — Marjory Stoneman Douglas High in Parkland, Fla.

“Once we saw that, my heart only dropped,” Martin said. “You hear about these things function in other places. You never suppose in a million years that it would occur somewhere where you’ve been. we put 4 years of my life into that high school. we graduated from there. we went by good times and bad … we had relations with some of a victims who played a partial in who we am today.”
