Player's death moves Bowden to call Coker

Florida State coach Bobby Bowden, left, called Miami coach Larry Coker to express his condolences on the death of senior Bryan Pata, who was shot Tuesday.
Bowden went through a similar tragedy. Pablo Lopez, a tackle, was shot and killed Sept. 13, 1986.
"I have never seen a reaction like that in my life," Bowden said of the scene at the hospital. "Yelling and hollering and crying and screaming and kicking and beating the wall. I'd been around funerals before, but I had never been around anything like that. I learned a little bit more about the modern-day kids. It's awful."
Pata's brother, Edwin Pierre-Pata, a sixth-year senior, is an FSU walk-on. He is in Miami with family and couldn't be reached.
