A Scout.com message board poster just published the following story. The poster must be from Valdosta. I’ll just let the story speak for itself:
As some of you may have heard, the Valdosta Wildcats experienced a tragedy in the past few weeks. A senior football player, James Eunice, went missing, and drowned a couple weeks ago while duck hunting with a friend. After a 2 week search, his body was finally found and the funeral was held today. James was already accepted to UGA and was looking to walk-on to the football team after talking with Coach Richt during a Rome/Mitchell recruiting trip down here. He was never the most athletic player but had the most heart of any player on the field. He was a fine Christian young man, made straight A’s, and was very popular in school. Well at the funeral today the preacher called Jay Rome and Malcolm Mitchell up to the stage with a box in their hands. In the box was a letter that CMR wrote to the family. The end of the note said, “Oh yeah, James made the team.” The two pulled out an official player jersey with his #23 and name on the back.
