Family of late New Mexico lineman sues former coach, school

first_img SUBSCRIBE TO US First Published: 26th August, 2020 06:26 IST LIVE TV Associated Press Television News Written By COMMENTcenter_img WATCH US LIVE Last Updated: 26th August, 2020 06:26 IST Family Of Late New Mexico Lineman Sues Former Coach, School Former New Mexico coach Bob Davie ignored a player’s plea for help in his fight against depression and instead made the lineman play a game before he took his own life, according to a lawsuit filed Tuesday Former New Mexico coach Bob Davie ignored a player’s plea for help in his fight against depression and instead made the lineman play a game before he took his own life, according to a lawsuit filed Tuesday.The lawsuit filed in federal court alleges the University of New Mexico, Davie and the NCAA didn’t protect 21-year-old Nahje Flowers, who died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in November.Court documents said the defensive standout had sought counseling to fight depression but Davie overruled a therapist’s recommendation that Flowers take some time off. He died days after, the lawsuit said.“The university’s football program carried more weight than the health and well-being of the student-athlete,” lawyer Bob Hilliard said. “He finally found no way out than to take his own life.”Michael Kennedy, a lawyer for Davie, did not immediately return an email seeking comment. University of New Mexico spokesman Daniel Jiron said the school had not seen the lawsuit and would likely not comment on any pending litigation. NCAA spokesman Emily James declined to comment.Hilliard said an autopsy later found that Flowers suffered from CTE — the brain injury associated with repeated blows to the head that can lead to depression, dementia and erratic behavior.When relatives sought answers after Flowers’ death, his father, La’Vonte, said Davie was “very disrespectful.” La’Vonte Flowers said his other son was angry at Davie’s behavior, and the coach had to be separated from him.“He said, ‘What do you want from me? … Do I need to get a lawyer or something?’” Vickie Gilmore, Flowers’ mother, said. “He walked up on me and my other son walked on him.”Gilmore said Davie then stepped away while laughing.The lawsuit seeks an unspecified amount in damages and legal fees.Also representing the family is civil rights attorney Ben Crump, who is working for the families of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Jacob Blake — three Black people who were killed or seriously injured by police officers, leading to protests around the country.Flowers was from Los Angeles, where he played football at Dorsey High School. He came to New Mexico in 2016.Flowers had 13 tackles and 1 1/2 sack in 2019.Davie stepped down in November following a rocky tenure and a 35-63 record over eight seasons. He previously coached at Notre Dame from 1997-2001. Davie was suspended for 30 days in 2018 because of alleged physical abuse of players.Image credits: AP FOLLOW USlast_img read more

Steelers lose 54-year-old tradition with NFL training camps staying home

first_imgThe NFL, to help contain the spread of COVID-19, has ordered all 32 teams to conduct their 2020 training camps in their own local team facilities.But that doesn’t mean every team will feel “at home” while not going away. For the Steelers, the league mandate brings an abrupt end to a tradition that began in 1966. Given the ardent nature of Steelers fans, the short trip from Pittsburgh was also a key revenue driver for the businesses in Latrobe in July and August. But in a year when NFL camps are bound to have no sweaty faithful in attendance, the experience wasn’t set up to be the same, anyway.Although most teams hold camps in their team facilities now, other teams impacted by a full home camp are the Raiders (Napa, Calif., since 1996) and Cowboys (Oxnard, Calif., since 2004). Las Vegas will conduct camp in its new Henderson, Nev., headquarters, while Dallas won’t travel from The Star in Frisco, Texas.Should the fight against the novel coronavirus take more positive turns, one can presume the Steelers will resume camping in Latrobe in 2021. For one year, however, they will need to adjust to breaking a long-standing routine. Latrobe, Pa., has been known for two things as a small town of less than 10,000 people about an hour east of Pittsburgh. The first is being the birthplace of Rolling Rock Beer. The second is hosting the Steelers annually for their preseason preparations for more than five decades.NFL FREE AGENCY: Best players available at each positionThis year, the Steelers won’t be training at Saint Vincent College on the field named for Chuck Noll, their late Super Bowl-winning coach.While the Steelers have a terrific modern facility called the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Sportsplex in the South Side neighborhood in their own backyard, Latrobe has been the NFL’s best, most picturesque out-of-town camp around for a long time, seeing most of the franchise’s greatest players pass through over 54 years. The community in the Laurel Highlands has provided a beautiful hilly backdrop for the intensity and heat of camp.last_img read more
