Wearing a Kobe Bryant No. 8 Lakers jersey, Olivia Tyler, 19, of Simi Valley, Calif., views the memorial at the Mamba Sports Academy in Thousand Oaks, Calif., and pray for the families of the victims of the Sunday helicopter crash that took the lives of the former Lakers star and eight others, Monday morning, Jan. 27, 2020.

She met him at a UCLA basketball game in 2017 and he gave her a high-five. "Kobe taught me a lot about being the first person in the gym and the last one out," she said. (AP Photo/Stefanie Dazio)
