Georgia QB Aaron Murray learns of father’s cancer, home vandalized
Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray’s home was vandalized after the Bulldogs’ 35-7 loss to South Carolina — the same day he found out his father had thyroid cancer.
Murray tweeted Sunday:
Probably the worst 12 hours of my life but I know my family will push through. Keep my dad in your prayers please—

Murray found out that his father, Dennis “Denny” Murray, had been diagnosed with thyroid cancer. “Papa Murray,” as Aaron referred to him in another tweet, is undergoing surgery today at the Moffit Cancer Center in Tampa.
Apparently Dennis Murray had been diagnosed “a few weeks ago,” but the parents only recently told Aaron and his brother Josh and sister Stephanie. Aaron Murray and his brother drove to Tampa on Sunday.
Murray’s roommate, UGA linebacker Christian Robinson, revealed the vandalism via Twitter:
Came to a house that was egged and rolled. Seems that people turn on you when you're not perfect. Thought we were in this together.—

Murray completed 11-of-31 for 109 yards and failed to throw a touchdown for the first time this season.
