Meadowlands: No Word on Tar Heel Mascot, Jason Ray

By David Scott - March 24, 2007

Just wanted to give a non-update, update on the Tar Heel mascot, Jason Ray, who was critically injured in a pedestrian/vehicle accident on Friday afternoon outside his hotel in Fort Lee, NJ.

UNC sports information director Steve Kirschner said he was still awaiting word from Ray's family and/or the hospital (Hackensack Medical Center) where Ray was taken yesterday and listed in critical condition.

"We were told after the game that he was in really bad shape and that he had an accident," said UNC senior reserve Wes Miller. "I personally don't know him, but he is a Carolina student and we are just praying for him, hoping for the best. Hopefully his family knows that he is in our prayers right now."

"I found out after the game that he was hit by a car," said UNC sophomore Danny Green. "We are praying for him right now and hopefully everything will turn out all right. We have a lot of guys on the team, who are close friends with him. If we have time to visit him, we will go, but I am not sure we will be able to get over there or not."
