Boston Bandits dedicate football game to alleged Hernandez murder victim
Lloyd, 27, played for the Boston-based football team before he was found dead in an industrial complex just a mile from Hernandez’s North Attleborough home on June 17.
The team released a statement Monday that said the game will take place at 8 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 6 at Madison Park High School in Roxbury, “in the memory of our fallen teammate, Odin Lloyd. Thank you for your support.”
The semi-professional footballer was also dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancee.
Hernandez is being held without bail, and is due in Fall River Superior Court Friday, just hours before the game.
