As was expressed on our Twitter and Facebook accounts on Tuesday, the entire Gridiron Glory staff was extremely saddened to hear about Wyatt Barber’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with his loved ones, the Eastern football program, and the community of which he was a part.

The outpouring of love and support for Wyatt has been incredible and we are delighted to see Barber’s community step up in a time of need. A GoFundMe page has been set up to assist Barber’s family.

We have received numerous requests to have Barber placed on our player of the year finalist list. After much consideration, we have decided to explore alternate ways to honor Barber on our show and across other web platforms. We appreciate the outreach and we realize Barber made a big impact on his loved ones and community.
