"To me, its just devastating. Im just devastated. The guy was not just my client, he was my friend. We spoke just last night, which makes this an even harder day.

At the tender age of 30, one of the more lauded members of the Southern University family was relieved of his duties on earth to answer the bells of a higher calling. Former Southern University basketball great Bobby Phills departed this life on Wednesday, January 12, following a fatal two car accident in Charlotte, North Carolina. "In the loss of Bobby Phills we have truly lost a great person, a great father, a great husband and a great mentor," lamented Southern University head basketball coach Tommy Green, a mentor of Phills's as the assistant coach during the star athlete's collegiate basketball career at Southern. "When people talk about Bobby (Phills) most of the discussion will surround his prowess on the basketball court," Green continued, "but to know him personally is to know a true class act." Bobby Phills began his collegiate career at Southern in the summer of 1987 in search of a Bachelor of Science degree in pre-veterinary medicine, his chosen field of study. However, along the way an overwhelmingly gifted basketball athlete was discovered in Phills with life's journey leading him down a different path to success.
