Star Football Player Shot And Killed In Florida
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Police in Florida say a high school football star was fatally shot late Saturday night.
Orlando Police say Dexter Rentz Jr. was the only one killed when four people were shot in a crime called in to authorities shortly after 11 p.m.
The Ocoee High School student had signed to be a wide receiver with the University of Louisville in Kentucky.
As a sophomore in 2017, he set a state record when he intercepted five passes in a single game.
In a radio interview last year, he said his goal was to grow as a leader and help other “young guys see that there’s more to it than football.”
