He committed to the University of Miami Hurricanes on November 2, 2010. However, he later canceled his enrollment at Miami and decided to pursue a career in football.
He was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the seventh round (242nd overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft. He played in five games during his rookie season. He made his NFL debut on September 10, 2015, against the Pittsburgh Steelers. In that game, he recorded his first career tackle during the fourth quarter. He ended up losing out on a starting job to Tony Jefferson during training camp the following year. On September 24, 2016, it was announced that Tray would be suspended for four games due to violating the league's substance abuse policy. He died on March 18, 2016, at the age of 28 after suffering severe head trauma in a dirtbike accident.

Dementia Cause of Death/John Mackey
Mr. Mackey, a Hall of Fame tight end and former president of the NFL Players Association, died Wednesday at Keswick Multi-Care Center in Baltimore of frontotemporal dementia, a condition he had battled for ten years.
Reggie Lewis, the Boston Celtics star who collapsed with a heart condition during a playoff game last April and was warned by doctors that if he ever played basketball again, died last night after collapsing while shooting baskets at the team's training center at Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts. He was 39.
Lewis had two children with his wife, Chrysti. One son, Rayven, now 10, was diagnosed this year with autism. The other daughter, Raijah, now 8, has adenoiditis.
He is the second former Celtic to die this season, following John Salley in October after finding out he had leukemia.
Lewis started playing basketball when he was 5 years old. In 1986, he led Boston College to its first National Invitation Tournament title since 1973. That same year, he became just the third player in NCAA history to score 2,000 points (he finished with 2,063) and grab 1,000 rebounds (1,207).
After graduating from BC in 1986, he entered the NBA draft and was selected ninth overall by the Celtics. He quickly became one of the league's best power forwards, helping the C's win their first championship in 18 years in 2008.
In 2009, he was named the Most Valuable Player of the NBA All-Star Game.
Hopper died on June 15, 2018, in an Abilene hospital, following a lengthy fight with cancer. He was 19.
The death of this much-loved animal caused widespread sadness and led to public protests. Hopper had been given to NASA by its creator as a birthday present for someone who worked there. The company that made his suit donated it to science after he died.
In January 2019 scientists published a study about Hopper's role in helping discover life on Mars. The report was written by members of the team that works at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) and was published in the journal Astrobiology. They said his data suggested that there could be ancient water sources on the Red Planet today. This is important because we know that Mars was once Earthfully vibrant with life.
NASA says that he will be buried on site at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. A memorial service will be held later this year.
