Former Card Covington shot and killed

Truly awful news to report this morning as former Cardinal Daniel Covington was shot and killed early Thursday morning downtown.

Covington, a graduate of Lexington Tates Creek, came to U of L as a walk-on defensive back before eventually earning a scholarship. A part-time starter at safety, he ranked second on the team in tackles in 2008 with 66. He graduated from U of L in 2009.

Thoughts and prayers go out to Covington's family and close friends.
