Eddie Griffin dies at 25 in a car accident on August 17. At about 1:30 am Griffin ignored a train crossing warning sign and was struck by the oncoming train. His body was so badly burned dental records were needed to identify the victim. Griffin had a history of alcohol abuse and was in a car accident in 2006 while driving intoxicated. So sad another life lost due to alcohol.


"Everybody tried to help him from the top to the bottom of the organization," said [Coach Dwane] Casey, who coached Griffin for 1½ seasons. "He just couldn't get it straight. It's a tragic ending for a beautiful kid. He had a beautiful heart."
