Matt James, a 6′ 8 ” football star from Xavier High School was preparing for Notre Dame in the fall.
Spring break in Florida is a dangerous place to be when your a teenager with an appetite for liquor. This was the case for Matt James, who allegedly fell from a balcony while on a drinking binge yesterday.
An Ohio high school is mourning the death of a star football player who had been recruited to play at Notre Dame in the fall.
A spokesman for St. Xavier High School in Cincinnati said Saturday that students gathered on the football Friday night to remember senior Matt James following reports that he died after falling from a hotel balcony while on spring break in Florida.
Panama City, Florida, police have not confirmed James’ identity pending notification of his family. But St. Xavier spokesman Mark Motz (MOHTZ) says the school is “devastated” by the news.
The 6-foot-8, 290-pound offensive lineman was an all-city and all-state football player for St. Xavier and signed a letter of intent Feb. 2 to play for Notre Dame. He also was a member of the high school’s varsity basketball team.
A man suspected of assaulting a woman, who jumped off a Malibu cliff and slid down a 200-foot embankment to escape, was arrested Friday in San Bernardino, authorities said.
Christian Marcus Verdin, 31, was arrested on suspicion of sexual assault and robbery, said Steve Whitmore, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
The woman had just finished jogging about noon March 12 above Point Dume State Beach when the assailant grabbed her from behind. She struggled with the man before breaking free and jumping over the beachfront cliff, Whitmore said.
“She fought off her attacker by literally jumping over the cliff and sliding down 200 feet to the beach,” Whitmore said.
The suspect’s arrest stemmed from DNA evidence gathered by investigators, Whitmore said.
The victim was treated for cuts and bruises that she suffered while sliding down the cliff.
Bored Kid at Obama Rally
I found this image on Drudgereport.com and thought I would share it here with my readers. I love the way this girl looks bored to tears with Obama standing right in front of her. Her mom looks as if she may have quite possibly had a happy ending in her jeans. Big fun indeed.
I feel sorry for the girl. Her sycophant mother probably dragged her down there against her will, where they had to park five miles away and walk in the freezing cold to see this moron of a president that has for all intents and purposes, ruined this kids future. JD
