The mass shooting that left 50 people dead and over 50 more injured following an incident at an Orlando nightclub early Sunday morning caused many to take to Twitter to express their condolences to the victims.
One of those was Florida coach Jim McElwain, who was in Tampa, Fla., on Sunday to take part in coaching at a satellite camp.
My thoughts and prayers have been with those involved with the Orlando shooting tragedy. Devastating. #PrayForOrlando

The Gators’ campus is less than two hours away from Orlando, so it indeed was a local story that hit home for the coach.
