JT Curtis has coached thousands of players over nearly a half-century of coaching and has answered tens of thousands of questions. However, when he learned one of his former players was killed Thursday afternoon, it took him a few moments to figure out what to say.

Joe McKnight, who was named The Times-Picayune's Male High School Athlete of the Decade of the 2000s for his time at John Curtis, was shot to death on the Westbank during an apparent road-rage incident.

"To say this is a shock is an understatement," said Curtis before he left the River Ridge campus to comfort the McKnight family. "It is like losing part of your family; I have known Joe since he was in the fourth grade - and his sister (JoHanna) and brother (Jonathan). They're like family, and my heart just goes out to them. ... I'm at a loss for words to be honest."
