Stupidity and negligence of the coaches, trainers, Ben Hill County and Fitzgerald governments, school superintendents, the training camp, and others were a factor in this young man's death, were they not? The parents should file a lawsuit complaint against all the above now and for whatever value they believe their son's life to be. Apparently nobody took the proper precautions to insure the safety of these students.

STUPITDITY AND NEGLIGENCE OF THE MOOTHER AND PAPPY AND OTHER FAAMBLY MEMBERS ARE THE SOUL RESPONSIBLITY OF OF THIS YOUNG BUCKS DEATH. THE FAAMBLY SHOULD HAVE KNOWN HE HAD A MEDICAL PROBLEM AND NOT LET HIM PLAY. THE SCHOO SHOULD NOT LET THE NAACP USE SCARE TACTICS TO PUSH OVER THE WHITE PEOPLES. A EMUMACATED NAACP ZUIT SUIT BRO FROM ATL WANTS ALL THE MONIES COMING FROM THIS BOYS DEMISE. AN ESCLADE IN THE HOOD IS THE ONLY THING TO SHOW FROM A SUIT. SHAME ON THE PARENTS.RUMOR IS HE LIVED WITH HIS GRANDMOOVER NOT HIS MOOVER.YOU KNOW HOW TO ADRESS THIS BOY HAD HE LIVED ANOTHER 10 YEARS/ WILL THE DEFENDENT PLEASE RISE.

Rufus, YOU are the stupid one. God and all the football players know this death was PREVENTABLE! Wonder how quickly they got the coach who was hopitalized help? Surely much quicker than DJ orin he'd still be ALIVE!!!!

WOW!!!! It sure is good to see that most everyone here has this all figured out. The corner says it could take up to three months to know exactly what happened but most of you already know.. AMAZING.. Just a little FYI.. Three team members of DJ were out here at my place just yesterday. They are all shocked at everything that has been said about the coaches and them being denied water. They all said that NO COACH ever told them to suck it up. If they needed water it was at both ends of the field. It might be a good idea to wait and see what the corner's report says before you start judging people on what you think happened. As far as the family, why would you file a law suit before you know the cause of death

All you people that make fun of this child being dead ought to be ashamed of yourselfs. NO matter who to blame. This is a disgrace for our citizens to act so disreptful. ALL I can say is what if it was your child? Would you not want the truth? How would it make you feel to read these post? I surly do not pretend to know the truth but this is so disresptful. I just want to know the truth whatever it is.

@ George. Seeking the truth and filing a lawsuit are not the same thing, and in the end, you wind up in two totally different places.
