Such an incredible person. Played with him when he was breaking through the league.— Joe Cannon (@JoeCannonGK1) August 27, 2019
Saw him coaching years back & he was a great mentor to the young players.
This is devastating & so tragic with him & Junior. My ❤️ to family, friends & fans of both these great guys. https://t.co/dy2bFccoJY
Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers especially his son Tyce. Colin loved his son more than life itself. And it kills me knowing he will not see his son grow up. Life is not fair and I cannot wrap my head around this tragedy.— Chandler Hoffman (@chandala) August 27, 2019

We lost an amazing guy and someone I was so honored to call my roommate, friend and teammate. His life was cut too short and our crew will never be the same without you him. Colin, you’ll always be in my thoughts. Don’t you worry, we’ll look after your boy for you. 🙏🏼RIP CC pic.twitter.com/bjwVG0uyB4— Geoff Cameron (@GeoffCameron) August 27, 2019
I feel sick hearing the news about Colin Clark today. I was lucky enough to be his teammate for 2 years in Houston. He was a great guy and friend taken away much too early. Rest In Peace my friend— Will Bruin (@wbruin) August 27, 2019
