No Wins, Too Many Losses

Football Deaths Should Be A Wake-Up Call for Parents and Other High School Stakeholders

What do high school football players Tyquan Brantley, 14, of South Carolina, Donaterio J. (D.J.) Searcy, 16, of Georgia, Isaiah Laurencin, 16, of Florida, Samuel Gitt, 17, of Pennsylvania, and high school football coach Wade McClain, 55, of Texas have in common? They all reached the end zone far too soon—crushed by a formidable opponent, sudden cardiac arrest.

Late summer’s brutal heat was said to be a factor in most of these recent deaths—temperatures have been among the warmest on record.

Harris's Legacy: A Heart Filled with Love

WINNIPEG--If anyone had reason to hate it was Richard Harris, but instead he chose to love, and that will be his lasting legacy.

Harris was once forced to sit in a car eating peanut butter sandwiches with his black teammates while white team members dined on steak inside a hotel. He faced prejudice for many years of his too-short life, but wouldn't let it turn him to hate.

Instead, Harris became a giant both physically and emotionally as he helped others his entire life.

A memorial for Harris held in Winnipeg on Sunday drew the entire Blue Bombers organization, as well as players and coaches from around the CFL as his colleagues came to say goodbye.
