We live in a time when we can hear bad news every second, and it must be acknowledged that in the last two years the world has been in complete chaos, from which we will have a hard time recovering. This time we receive another news from the world of sports, more precisely from the USA.

Robbie Roper - an old high school quarterback, who was only 18, tragically passed away due to complications after surgery That way, his family took to Twitter: "Hey guys, it's the Roper family. We just wanted to update everyone on Robbie.

Robbie just passed. He was the biggest joy to our family. We are proud of the young man he has become." "He will be missed by his friends and family dearly. We are still working on funeral arrangements, and will update everyone on the time, date and location," Roswell High School football coach Chris Prewett was shocked by this information and says Robbie fought until the last minute "Robbie did everything in life with a contagious, positive, and energetic attitude that will be missed by all who knew him.

And we are saddened by the passing of one of our local high school football family members. May he rest in peace as we keep his family, friends and all those mourning his loss in our prayers." " the Florida team said.

His sister, Brenna Ropper, had only words of praise for her brother: “Robbie was able to touch so many hearts,” Breanna said in a Twitter post Wednesday afternoon. "I am beyond proud of the man he has become, and can only wish to be half as good as a teammate, leader, and person that Robbie was."
