Corey D. Ebner: Author (1/15/90 – 12/29/11)

It is with a heavy heart that I announce today’s passing of a TMR family member… sports writer Corey Ebner. Although he authored only a few articles for us, once you are in the TMR fold, you are always considered family. I never met Corey personally, but people I do know and respect thought the world of him. That is all the information I need to acknowledge how great a guy he was. Corey would have been 22 years old next month.

Corey loved to write about sports, was incredibly talented and had a bright future ahead of him. He was honored when we published his work, but it was us who had the honor and the privilege of calling him one of our writers.

The best way to pay tribute to any writer is to read and enjoy his work, so in honor of Corey, we call your attention to the articles he penned for us. You can read them all as they were originally posted via the links below. Please give them each a read to honor Corey as well as his family and his friends:

NCAA College Football 2010: An Offseason Nightmare, by Corey Ebner

My deepest condolences go out to the family and friends of Corey. He left us much too soon and with so much more left to give. Neil and Tara, I am so sorry for your loss, stay strong and please pass my personal, and this organization’s love, respect and condolences to Corey’s family and loved ones.

Corey, Rest easy, Bro. You will be missed.
