University of Miami Mourns Footballer Jojo Nicolas on Twitter
The University of Miami community was saddened to hear that former football player Jojo Nicolas died around 5 p.m. Wednesday after a horrific crash involving a semi-trailer truck on the MacArthur Causeway Tuesday. Fans, students, and Nicolas' former teammates took to Twitter to send their prayers and communicate their grief.
A social media trail shows that Nicolas and his brother Abner Davis had been pre-celebrating Nicolas' 25th birthday (on March 3) at Mansion Nightclub in South Beach. Before the crash, Davis' Twitter was filled with anticipatory statements of your typical club night, and after the crash, he was heartbroken.
Brandon Washington was an offensive linesman for UM while Nicolas was there. He is currently playing with the St. Louis Rams.
