    Life man....

    Well earlier today (Thursday January 13th) I attended one of our basketball games against our rival college. Kentucky Wesleyan vs. University of Southern Indiana. Well their center Jeron Lewis with an apparent heart condition know suddenly dropped to the floor and was motionless. There was a good 15-20 min break and no one that I have spoken too, saw what happened. All we know the ball got passed half court and the whistle was blown and trainers were called out. We saw him go through what was seizures but after I learned that he had a heart condition and passed away he was going through cardiac arrest....

    Just remember fellas that life is short, but he died while playin something that he loved.

    Well the people that i've spoken to said that he had an apparent heart condition and had lost nearly 100 lbs since the summer. He may have been taking something too but I don't know. People said he could only play so many minuets and now that I recall he wasn't in the game much but grabbed some big rebounds for them. What makes it worst is that he just had a son and was engaged…

    Kid is from Fort Wayne Northside, high school here in Fort Wayne about 10 minutes from where I am sitting. Crazy sad stuff.

    The local news is saying no known health problems and they think it was from hitting his head on the floor.

    I dont know, Ive just heard "hear-say" from others and from a girl that went to school and graduated with him. She said that he had a heart murmur or some kind of condition, had lost "X" amount of lbs since the summer and had certain amount of mins he could play.
