I have been devastated since hearing the news that my former teammate/roommate with LA Galaxy Colin Clark passed away. We were in multiple fantasy football leagues together and no one got me into it like he did. He was an amazing player/teammate but an even better person.— Chandler Hoffman (@chandala) August 27, 2019
