Greene Central football player killed in crash

SNOW HILL, N.C. (WITN) – A Greene Central High School football player is dead after an automobile crash this weekend, according to the school’s Facebook page. The post refers to Jah’Tayvious Edwards as a leader and great teammate to all.

Coach Jay Wilson tells WITN Edwards was “always laughing and joking and overcame a lot just to be able to play football.” He goes on to say that Edwards “had his kidney removed halfway through his junior year and worked hard to return for his senior year.” Wilson adds that he believes the crash happened somewhere near Ayden. We are working to obtain a more precise location.

The school’s Facebook post says additional counselors will be available to students on Monday to offer support.

Details are limited, but more information will be included in this story once it’s obtained.
