We mourn the loss of @ORUMSoccer student-athlete, Eugene Quaynor. Eugene was the epitome of the mission we strive for. He was a captain and had a spirit-empowered heart ready to impact the world for Jesus. His infectious smile will be missed, but we will never forget #27. pic.twitter.com/peL9daBkoB

The impact pushed Eugene’s vehicle through the intersection into a wall after which it caught fire.
Police said all attempts by witnesses present to drag the footballer to safety proved futile.
A statement from the Oral Roberts University Athletics department eulogised the deceased saying “Eugene was the epitome of the mission we strive for.”
“He was a captain and had a spirit-empowered heart ready to impact the world for Jesus. His infectious smile will be missed, but we will never forget #27,” the tweet stated.
