Virginia running back, shooting survivor Mike Hollins scores first touchdown since last year’s tragedy

Virginia Cavaliers running back Mike Hollins had a strong showing on the football field on Saturday. Hollins scored two touchdowns despite Virginia’s one-point loss to James Madison.

The pair of touchdowns marked Hollins’ first scores on a football field since last year’s on-campus deadly shooting. Three Virginia football players died as a result of the November 2022 shooting.

The university honored Devin Chandler, Lavel Davis Jr. and D’Sean Perry and their families with a video tribute ahead of the team’s first home game since the tragedy. Actor Samuel L. Jackson narrated the video tribute, which honored the late Virginia football players.

Virginia’s last two games were canceled last week due to the shooting. The suspect, Christopher Darnell Jones Jr., 23, is facing aggravated murder charges.
