After crash, UNC linebacker plays in memory of friend

There were weeks when Tommy Heffernan couldn’t get out of bed, when his mom had to serve him meals in his room. He slept through some days. At night, dreams of the car crash and flames haunted him. Sometimes, those dreams fooled him into believing that his best friend, more like a brother, survived. Then Heffernan would wake up, and the real nightmare – the one he couldn’t escape – would begin again. (Raleigh News & Observer)
