Auburn Supporting Quan Bray After Death Of Mother, Gene Chizik Issues Statement

In the wake of the death of the mother of incoming freshman Auburn wide receiver Quan Bray, the Auburn community is reaching out to help Bray. The Birmingham News reports that Bray has been the recipient of an outpouring of support on Facebook and Twitter, and that the father of quarterback Kiehl Frazier tweeted that he and his son were on the way to Bray's home in LaGrange, Ga. to offer support.

Bray's mother, Tonya, was reportedly killed in a drive-by shooting on Sunday morning. The man who turned himself in for the slaying, Jeff Jones, is listed as Quan Bray's father on Bray's official Auburn profile, and news outlets have reported that Jones and Tonya Bray were a separated couple.

Auburn coach Gene Chizik is currently on vacation, but issued a statement through the university:

"Our thoughts and prayers are with Quan and his entire family during this extraordinarily difficult time. This is a terrible tragedy, but the Auburn Family will support Quan in every way possible throughout the grieving and healing process ahead. Quan is a great young man with a bright future, and we will be there for him every step of the way."
