good luck gents
You may be getting ahead of yourself, MLive dude. Drake Harris had 8 catches for 243 yards against Watts-Jackson's OLSM last fall.
i find this extremely interesting
i may have altered the title
i thought this was america
like I said on twitter: that was almost as intense as Iowa NIT games
...talks about how UConn hasn't been in contact and how they're out. (HT: UMHoops)
Jalen, Burke, and Simmons.
Mike Hart the heavy favorite in the trolling competition
just what the Pistons need: a third string center. Joe Dumars was replaced by a mean ol' alien a few years back you guys.
this would be a close approximation of hypothetical graduation speech
no you guys they're just super pumped about COLLLLLLLLLLLLEGE
not a surprise
Sad Story out of North Carolina. He died Tuesday night of unknown causes.
R.I.P. thoughts with the family.
So weird to see kids so close to my age dying like this while playing sports. Eerily similar to Wes Leonard a little over a year ago...

I remember a few years ago when Nick Adenhart died-- I was and remain a huge Angels fan, and my best friend ( a very casual sports fan) was suprised how it hit me. I didn't cry or anything, but I was in a very solemn shock that suprised him.
"It was open," Toussaint said. "I can't compare this hole to any other holes because I can't remember that but it was a huge hole."
too sad, his quote killed me. Hope he is in a better place.
Looking for BTTYS Nike sb Michigan Dunk Highs size 14, hit me up.
not that any teenagers death is more/less sad based on whether or not they "get" it-- heck, I am 25 and I still don't always get it-- but man, when a kid is that much closer than I ever was to "getting" it , it highlights why the death of a teen is so sad-- its about what they never got the chance to be.
Damn. Folks from the Indianapolis area immediately think of John Stewart, a Lawrence North/UK commit who died on the court in a similar manner. Just tragic. Really hurts to even think about it. Can't imagine how his family feels.
Yes. I was in elementary school at the time of John's passing. Even as a little kid I noticed how it shook the whole Indianapolis area, just as I'm sure Josh's passing will shake his community. RIP to both John and Josh. Incredibly sad.
Tragic, RIP Josh.
ECG stress testing should really become a required part of the physical for participation in high school sports. Very easy to do, not that expensive, and can save lives.
There's a lot of debate in the medical community about cardiac testing prior to high school sports. No countries that I know of do exercise ECG - it may help identify a few exercise induced arrhythmias but otherwise probably isn't practical and might miss a lot of other things. Italy has for years been doing standard resting ECG's. It's pretty good at identifying hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (probably the number one reason athletes die during competition) and can identify prolonged QT. Downside on ECG screening is false positives requiring additional potentially unnecessary testing. A couple years go a large hospital in the detroit area (not UM) offered free 5 minute echo screening to look for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy - our feeling was that this could provide a false sense of security because it could miss other potential causes. I do that we should be doing better at identifying at risk athletes before these tragic events occur.
"I've been kind of overlooked and I just want to prove people wrong. That is my motivation. It's hard because I'm the middle child of seven, and it's hard to be away from family [at a boarding school]. You have to get it again. You have to do that in college, so I might as well start early." - Level, in an interview
It is very, very sad that he will not have this opportunity. Thoughts and condolences to his family and community.
"Funny isn't it, how naughty dentists always make that one fatal mistake."

Without knowing all the details of the scenario, I would have to guess it was caused from sickle-cell. It is most commonly found in African Americans in the US and has been the cause of many players collapsing in athletic events.
EDIT* didn't realise this was an old post bumped by a spam bot.. please delete
Just looking at his smiling face and imaging who he was and who he might have been...
Josh is from my hometown and I have a few friends that have played basketball with him in the past. He goes to school just down the street from my house. Sad to hear such a tragic story, thoughts and prayers go out to the boy's family!
