"Due to today's tragedy, we have decided to cancel football practice this afternoon," said head coach Bob Toledo.
"I met with the team at 2:15 p.m. and it was a very emotional meeting. The team was sensitive to the feelings of the people who have suffered a great loss. Our prayers go out to the victims, the survivors and their families.
"After listening to comments from several members of the team, I decided that regardless of whether or not we play the game on Saturday, today should be a day for us to reflect on things other than football and I cancelled meetings and practice."
Football practice will resume tomorrow as scheduled.
