Former TJC Player Murdered

Sad news for the Tyler Junior College family.  Former offensive lineman Michael Erokwu was shot early Sunday after a dispute over a minor traffic accident in North Dallas. The Nigeria native was entering his senior season at Midwestern State University, where head football coach Bill Maskill calls the shooting a "devastating blow" to the team and school.  "Big Mike", as he was affectionately known, was 22-years-old.

Dallas Police on Wednesday issued a murder warrant for 21-year-old Blake Callahan.
