Dan Campbell Gets Emotional While Dedicating Lions’ First Win to Oxford High School Shooting Victims
The Detroit Lions snagged their first win of the season on Sunday (Dec. 5), and head coach Dan Campbell is dedicating the win to the victims of the Oxford High School shooting.
Campbell got emotional during his post-game press conference, discussing the win and the horrific events at Oxford.
“I just wanted them to know exactly what we were going to represent today,” he said. “The shirts, the hats, the decals, the people that are affected. Some of our players know of someone that was affected.”
He added, “To me, my thought was, ‘Hey, man, if we can, for three hours, just ease their suffering a little bit, that’s worth it.’ So, that’s kinda how I thought of this and we did a great job, players responded and played well.”
