ICYMI: Robert Kraft Lends Patriots Plane To University of Virginia Football TeamKirby Lee - USA TODAY Sports

Over the weekend, Robert Kraft, in an act out of tremendous goodwill, lent the Patriots team plane to the University of Virginia football team so that players could attend the funerals of their fallen teammates following the tragic mass shooting that claimed their lives on November 13th. 

Devin Chandler, Lavel Davis Jr., and D’Sean Perry were shot and killed on a charter bus after returning home from a class trip. A fourth teammate, Mike Hollins, was also shot but survived the attack and was released from the hospital earlier this week.

According to an ESPN report, the entire Virginia Cavaliers football team attended all three funerals, the first of which was on Saturday for Perry. A memorial service for Chandler in Virginia Beach took place on Sunday. A celebration of life service for Davis will occur on Wednesday in South Carolina. 

Since the Patriots had their game Thursday, the team plane was available as the team had already returned to New England. 

Former Charlottesville sports reporter Brandon Lloyd revealed Kraft’s generous act upon seeing the plane land at the local airport.
