McNerney and one of his teammates, Zach DeCicco, were allegedly beaten by six men while walking back to the campus. DeCicco was able to get away with just a broken nose, but it was him and Larry Cekella, a student, who eventually found McNerney’s body.
In the meantime, the team’s head coach handed out T-shirts with McNerney’s picture and number as the players boarded the bus for today’s game.
