For years he hosted a youth lacrosse camp there and lived in nearby Monroe.
After coming to Nazareth College Randall continued to go back to Newtown each summer to teach young kids lacrosse.
Some of his friends still there know others touched by the tragedy.
Randall say it is the unimaginable for this quintessential New England town.
"It's horrific to think such a nice area, such a nice community can be impacted by something that is just so terrible. I just don't have any words to describe it," Randall said.
Randall says he plans to pay a visit to the area at some point to show his support.
