Family of UAB Back Shot in Florida Deciding on Organ Donation



The family of a University of Alabama Birmingham running back who was fatally shot in Florida says he is still hooked to machines while his parents decide whether to allow the donation of his organs.

Allen Mosley said Monday that his nephew, Gregory Bryant, was pronounced dead on Sunday morning but the family is still deciding whether to allow organ donation. Bryant’s body is still attached to machines at a hospital while the family decides.

The 21-year-old Bryant was driving on Interstate 95 early Saturday when he was shot and a passenger wounded. No suspects have been arrested and police have released few details.

Bryant started his career at Notre Dame and spent last season attending ASA College in Miami, where he played in just one game. He was the biggest name in UAB’s first recruiting class since the school restarted its football program. Because UAB won’t play again until the 2017 season, Bryant was allowed to enroll in January and could have become eligible to play after spending an academic year at the school.
