Marshawn Lynch sends jersey to family of slain teenager

Saturday December 5th, 2015

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch sent a personalized jersey to the family of slain Sacramento high schooler Jaulon Clavo. 

Clavo, a varsity football player at Grant Union High School, was shot and killed on Nov. 13. The 17-year-old was shot in the neck while driving a car with four teammates to pick up food before a home football game.

Lynch reportedly found out about Clavo’s death through his former teammate Quan Thompson, who played with Lynch at Cal during the 2006 season. Thompson also played football at Grant Union.

According to Thompson’s Facebook post, Lynch sent a jersey and his condolences to the Clavo family. The jersey features Clavo’s last name and high school number.

Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins took care of all expenses for the funeral of Clavo.
