Sad news out of Kent State

Just heard on the radio that Jason Bitsko, the starting C for the Kent State football team passed away today. Apparently someone found him in bed and he was unresponsive. They said there may have been an undetected medical issue, but it is too early to know for sure.

Very sad. RIP young man.

Wow. Absolutely terrible news. Thoughts and prayers with his family, friends and the Kent State Community. Kind of speechless right now.

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

Shows how little football and injuries actually are on a life scale.

Mark my words..I don't need acceptance. I'm catching interceptions on you innocent pedestrians.

Sad to read.

My condolences to the Bitsko family, as well as the Kent State community.

That is horrible news.  RIP.

I randomly came across an image of #54 for Kent State this morning (don't even remember what I was searching for), but I didn't look at it.  That's the one who passed.  One of Braxton's high school teammates, too.  It might have been a tough day yesterday for us Buckeye fans with the Braxton news, but the season-ending injury is so inconsequential next to this.

Having a child attend KSU right now causes this to hit home more than I'd like. My heart goes out to the young man's parents and the rest of his family, friends and teammates. Praying that the grace and peace of God cover them all during this very difficult time.

I live just a few min from Kent State here in Akron.  This is just terrible sad news.  My thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends, and teammates.  RIP!!
