Students and faculty at North Carolina Central University are still processing shock and grief following the tragic killing of Trevor VanDyke, a freshman defensive back for the Eagles football team who was fatally shot Monday night.

The police investigation is ongoing. VanDyke was a stand out player at Clayton High School in Johnston County and joined NCCU’s football team as a walk-on. VanDyke was a redshirt last season. Host Frank Stasio speaks with Trei Oliver, head football coach at NCCU, about Trevor VanDyke’s life and his team’s loss.

Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
