Sean Taylor was just 24 years old. He had a long career ahead of him in the NFL and an even longer life ahead of himself.

That’s when it all ended. On November 17, 2007, burglars entered Taylor’s Miami home and shot him in the leg. Ten days later, on Nov. 27, Taylor passed away at the young age of 24.

This tragedy shocked an unsuspecting football world, as one of the most-talented players in the league and a young father left this life way too early.

Eleven years later, and those around the football community are paying their respects on the anniversary of Taylor’s death.
