    Another NFLer dies in his 50s. Shocking.

    Glad someone else caught that.
    If AP out of Atlanta did this story, you'd think they know better — especially since Newnan is, I don't know, not that far down 85.
    Drew Hill is also a Georgia Tech legend and loved by the Yellow Jacket fans and alumni. I've heard nothing but glowing things about him as a person and a player from Tech fans I know.
