RE: Not OT : WSJ
IMO, this should never have happened after the Dale Lloyd lawsuit. Especially if you read our resident doctor's discussion of it at the time.

The only possible good that could have come from his death is that all concerned parties should have been able to prevent it from happening again.

Quote:The rule did not prevent the 2014 death of a University of California player who had sickle cell trait. The player, Ted Agu, died after a drill outside the team’s stadium during which players had to repeatedly run up and down a hill. The school admitted liability for his death and paid Agu’s family $4.75 million.

Bridgette Lloyd follows such cases from her home in Houston. The death of her son, Dale, at Rice in 2006 prompted the family to sue the NCAA, resulting in the settlement that led to sickle cell testing. Dale Lloyd would have turned 31 next week.

“We cry like the day we lost our son,” she said. “You cry for the families, you cry for the young men. There is so much potential in them that they didn’t get to realize.”
