A memorial service is planned for 6 p.m. Tuesday at Wake Forest University in North Carolina for former four-year Ayala High School varsity soccer player Sean Randolph, who was killed last month in a motorcycle crash in North Carolina.

Police in Winston-Salem say Mr. Randolph, a graduate of Wake Forest after playing four seasons on its men’s soccer team, was found about 4 a.m. in the 1300 block of Reynolda Road.

Paramedics pronounced the 22-year-old dead at the scene.

Excessive speed was likely a factor in the crash, police said. He is survived by his sister Michelle Moses, and his brother Michael Randolph, also a former Ayala High soccer player and professional soccer player with the Atlanta Silverbacks of the North American Soccer League.

Sean Randolph was a four-year varsity starter on the Ayala High boys soccer team and played club soccer for CZ Elite. His club team won the 2009 Region IV championship and advanced to the U.S. Soccer Nationals.

He played three seasons at Wake Forest University from 2009 to 2011 and was a Wake Forest College Cup team member in 2009.

His first collegiate goal, a game-winner against No. 7-ranked Indiana, came during his freshman season. It made ESPN SportsCenter’s Top 10 Plays of the Day.

“This is a tragic loss for the Wake Forest men’s soccer family,” said head coach Jay Vidovich. “Sean will always be remembered for his laughter and tremendous personality.”

Funeral services were held Dec. 30 at Forest Lawn in Covina Hills.
