ROANOKE, Va. – The Roanoke Catholic School community is mourning the loss of a former student-athlete.
Football and track star Kawuan Ray died Tuesday evening, according to school leaders who shared the news Tuesday on Facebook.
School leaders said Ray died unexpectedly from a medical emergency.
Ray led the football and track teams to state championships. But school leaders said, “More importantly Kawuan was a light in our hallways and classrooms, and his absence will be deeply felt by all who had the privilege of teaching him, coaching him and calling him a friend.”
