South Florida’s rising UVA soccer star and D’sean Perry was buried

Miami Gardens, FL – Family and friends of D’Sean Perry gathered for his funeral at the Antioch Missionary Baptist Church in Miami Gardens on Saturday night.

“He cared deeply about his family and wanted to make sure he was looking his best every time he walked out the door,” said Earl Simms, Perry’s former high school football coach at Gulliver Prep.

Perry, 22, is from Miami. He was one of three people killed in one shoot at the University of Virginia on Sunday, November 13 at approximately 10:30 p.m. while returning on a bus with other UVA students from a field trip after seeing a play in Washington, DC

“Every time I look up at the sky and see a bright shining star, I am forever reminded of the light D’Sean brought into my life,” said now Uva. said football coach Tony Elliott.

His coaches and friends described a determined, passionate young man whose interests went beyond the football field.

“Not only did he enjoy acting in the play, he also enjoyed performing after the play. That makes life for coaches challenging at times. And yet, how could one play the game more exemplary, while within the whistles it’s just not enough, I’d rather play a little longer”, Ex-Uva. said coach Branco Menendhall.

“I kept hearing about his name being associated with things like music, art, life and love,” Elliott said.

Christopher Darnell Jones, Jr. is accused of killing Perry, Devin Chandler and Lavel Davis Jr., all of whom played football for the Uva. Cavaliers. Another football player, Mike Hollins, was seriously injured after being shot in the back. He was released from a Richmond, Virginia, hospital on Monday. A woman was also injured.

Jones was arrested in a suburb of Richmond, Virginia, after a manhunt that lasted nearly 24 hours. He is being held without bond.

“Dear D bro man I miss you as you write this I don’t know what to say my heart fails without you bro every time I close my eyes I see your kind smile,” Sean Moore, a teammate and also a South Florida native, said.

A gofundme Page was set up by Bradley Smith, the owner of a barbershop in Palmetto Bay, to help meet the Perry family’s expenses. Smith said: “We’ve seen him grow from a young kid to a handsome young man on a full scholarship playing football at UVA.” Smith says on the gofundme page that Sean Perry has been taking his son to the hairdresser “for as long as I can remember.”

According to ESPN, all are Uva. Soccer players plan to attend the funerals of the other two killed in the shooting. The university has canceled its last two football games of the season.
