    Ennis Haywood Dies

    May 9, 2003, 7:39 p.m. - Cowboys running back Ennis Haywood died Sunday afternoon after spending most of Saturday on life support. The 23-year-old Haywood passed away at Medical Center of Arlington at 3:27 p.m. from an undisclosed illness. Hospital spokeswoman Diane Stout told The Associated Press, ``The cause of death at this time is unknown." She said she doesn't know what Haywood was being treated for. Haywood reportedly woke up early Saturday morning around 4 a.m. after vomiting in his sleep. Around 6 a.m., he stopped breathing and was rushed to the hospital. Stunned Cowboys officials are still trying to gather information, and the club has not made an official statement.

    "It's such a shock because I talked to him every single day," Cowboys offensive tackle Flozell Adams said Sunday night. "I just talked to him on Thursday and everything was fine. "Every time I talked to him, he was never negative and always spirited. I know he was so excited about this season. He was in the weight room a lot and just getting ready. He kept saying this was going to be his year." Haywood, a local Dallas product from Carter High School, competed in the Cowboys' three-day mini-camp last weekend at Valley Ranch and was expected to compete for a backup running job position this summer in training camp. A four-year letterman at Iowa State, Haywood spent his rookie season on the Cowboys' practice squad, after leading the team in rushing during the preseason with 121 yards on 31 carries. Haywood ranks fifth in career rushing at Iowa State with 2,862 yards, and sixth in touchdowns with 27. As a senior, he ran for 1,169 yards and 14 touchdowns to lead the Big 12. ``Like everyone in the Cyclones' football family, we are shocked and saddened beyond words,'' McCarney said Sunday. ``Ennis was one of the classiest gentlemen there has ever been, on and off the field. He was an unbelievable competitor, and one of the most tenacious football players I've ever been around.''

    Its a shame he died but here comes some more **** about supps i bet

    Could a mod please edit out that HTML? Unless it's coming out normal for everyone else, but it's showing me just the tags...

    You have to turn off the WYSIWYG editor in your CP destro. The forum no longer supports HTML in posts so that's why it shows. Winwords had the same problem.

    It's too bad that happened to the young man but if they find any supps, hell even Creatine, than you know the media will blow this out of proportion. Let's keep in mind that many pro athletes use recreational drugs. Remeber many Dallas Cowboys have been known to have drug problems, the most tragic example of this was Mark Tuinei's death several years ago.

    ya...so tragic all the way around. and i bet if they found two bottles side by side one with ephedra and the other with ecstasy i bet they'd say it was the ephedra that killed him and never make any mention of the ecstasy.
