A 17-year-old aspiring Marine who played on her high school football team was struck and killed by an alleged drunk driver in Florida over the weekend, authorities said.

Sophia Delott of Indian Rocks Beach was riding her bike around 10:30 p.m. Friday when she was hit by Neil Singhal, 69, deputies told Fox 13.

Singhal had an open bottle of vodka in his BMW and appeared intoxicated, the outlet reported.

?It is with an extremely heavy heart and incredible sadness that I write this post,? Chris Miller, Delott?s football coach, said on the team?s Facebook page. ?Last night, one of our own was taken from us by a drunk driver.

?Sophie was a Warhawk through and through. She was a Marine. Most of all, she was our family.?

Delott planned to serve in the Marines after graduation, according to recruiter Sgt. Paul Dingess.

?I wanted her to do well, and I knew she was going to ? we all saw that,? Dingess told Fox 13. ?And it?s a big loss because I know the potential she had just in my short time I had with her.?

Singhal is being charged with manslaughter and is being held on $200,000 bond, records show.

A GoFundMe account has been set up to help the Delott family and has raised $5,400 in two days, People reported.

The page is also filled with comments from loved ones.

?She was genuinely one of the kindest and sweetest people I have ever met in my life, and it?s beyond devastating that she was robbed of the rest of her life,? one post said. ?She had so much potential and it?s so hard to believe and process the fact that she?s gone. She was a selfless person, and was nothing but sweet and caring to everyone she met.?
