Former pro athlete-turned-actor, Rick Fox, said that when retiring from a professional sport, your life takes a major turn.

The Last Photo Of Junior Seau Alive?

Filed under: Sad SadFootball

This is so sad.

This photo (above) is possibly one of the last photos of Junior Seau before his tragic death.

It was taken on April 30th, just two days before his alleged suicide.

He was at a kids' charity event called '9-1-1 For Kids' where they teach kids how to properly communicate with 9-1-1 operators, specifically for emergency calls only.

The event was at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Golf Links in Dana Point.

Junior was there, joking around and even had drank a few shots of tequila with Karma Tequila Co-Founder Gary Eisenberger.

Gary said Junior was the most jovial and happy person out of all the celebrities at the event.

Wow.

We didn't think we could feel any worse about this but we do. This is so sad.

His family and friends are in our hearts and thoughts.

Junior Seau's Family And Former Coach Speak Out On His Suicide

Filed under: Sad SadFootball

As we previously mentioned, Junior Seau, 43-year-old ex-pro football star, has killed himself.

It's a possibility that his death could be a result of the numerous head injuries a professional football player receives throughout his career.

Even though all of this has just recently come to light, his mother and former coach have already spoken out about the suicide.

His mother talks about her son in a heart-wrenching press conference (above) and his former coach, Norv Turner, from when he played for the Chargers, said:

"I have no words to describe the passing of Junior Seau. It is a sad, sad day for not only me, but for the whole sports community. I worked with Junior here and later in Miami. I can tell you no one had more character and true leadership ability than Junior. He brought passion to the game of football that was unmatched. His commitment to charitable causes in the community was inspiring. It was an honor to know him. My thoughts and prayers are with his family."

Not only was Junior a sports star, he was a philanthropist. He started the Junior Seau Foundation back in 1992.

It was a great program that would "educate and empower young people through the support of child abuse prevention, drug and alcohol awareness, recreational opportunities, anti-juvenile delinquency efforts and complimentary educational programs."

So sad to see such a young man's flame snuffed out so suddenly.
