Daytona Beach Thunder Player Dies While Making Tackle

The most recent reports out of Daytona Beach, Florida are that Javon Camon, a defensive back on the Daytona Beach Thunder, a team in the World Indoor Football League, died while being blocked. Camon was blocked hard by Columbus Lions receiver, Juval Winston, and had to be carted off of the field after laying motionless for a number of moments. He was pronounced dead at Halifax Medical Center a few hours later. The Thunder was 0-1 heading into tonight's game against the Columbus Lions, and lost 45-42.

Camon was a four-time letterman while playing football for the University of South Florida from 2001-2004. He was special teams MVP in 2003, and led the team in tackles as team captain his senior year.
