R.I.P. David Edwards. #NYC guard from Andrew Jackson HS. Played 1 year at Georgetown then transferred to Texas A&M. 1990-94. Found an article on him, he said, "I wish I could've been more mature after high school. I could've listened more.” pic.twitter.com/1S9PIeuywk— Steve Finamore (@CoachFinamore) March 24, 2020
In a heartfelt post on Facebook, former teammate and four-year letterman Charles Henderson paid tribute to David Edwards. He was quoted as saying, “Never in a million years would I have even imagined my backcourt teammate would go before his time. I just got the news that Dave Edwards passed away. For those that have been praying for him, he is now in a better place. This coronavirus has hit me in the heart. We need to find a vaccine. Dave was one of the fiercest competitors and best point guards that I’ve ever met. Nearly unstoppable. [I] learned how to become tough as nails competing against him every day and shaking off adversity. Will also remember the 4 years we were together after you transferred from Georgetown to Texas A&M. RIP Dave Boogie!!!! #NYNY #JamaicaQueens #RuckerPark”
