Bradley Williams collapsed
during football practice at Xavier on Sept. 28, 2005 and he passed away
that evening at the hospital.
Bradís death was not
associated with any direct, traumatic football contact, but, was an
unfortunate coincidence that happened during practice. He had a
congenital heart problem... unrelated to any football injury or not
due to his involvement in sports.
He was the son of Joel &
Deanna Williams of Greenville. Brad also played baseball at XHS.
The football team wore a
"BW" patch on their game uniforms, a 56 decal on their helmet,
and, a memorial rock was dedicated near the football game field at Xavier,
adjacent to the team entrance.
