    RIP to Reggie and his family.

    Hidden physical problems of athletes leading to death are all heartbreaking.

    Awful news but you have to wonder what he was thinking playing football with a history of seizures. His mother's comment makes me believe that he's had more than one seizure.

    Indeed, that's awful and tragic. At least, he passed doing what he probably loved the most. RIP.

    I live about 10 minutes away from that school. I grew up going to church and playing youth basketball with the team's OC, whose father, one of the defensive coaches, taught me in Sunday School. I can't imagine what they're going through right now, not to mention the boy's family and friends.

    My old school plays them later this year. We're 0-20 all-time and this year we've got a group that maybe could give them a game. It doesn't matter anymore though. It's just a game.
