    This would really suck.

    Nothing at the Wake Forest site yet, nothing on Google News. Someone added a line to Prosser's Wikipedia entry about it, but it's unsourced.

    EDIT: Winston-Salem Journal has this
    The Wiki entry said he was striken at practice, so already that's discounted.

    Did a Google News search as well. The most recent story that pops up is from Tuesday by The Sporting News.

    Wiki entry I saw lists his death date as July 24.

    Checked the Winston-Salem newspaper just now. No word or anything on it.

    it's solid enough that i believe it and if i were a writer i'd be tracking it hard and already have much of the nuts and bolts obits written, but i wouldn't publish it quite yet.

    but, well, i got it pretty darn strong

    Boy, he didn't look 56. Hope this isn't as bad as it sounds.
