GhostRiders mourn passing of Camon

February 28, 2007 - World Indoor Football League 2 (WIFL 2) - Osceola Ghostriders News Release

[KISSIMMEE, Fla.] - The Osceola GhostRiders ownership, management, coaches and players are mourning the loss of Daytona Beach Thunder defensive back Javon Camon.

An emotional head coach Marquette Smith said, "The GhostRiders organization is deeply saddened by the events of last night. Our hearts go out to Javon's family, peers and the entire Thunder organization."

Smith was on hand at the Ocean Center scouting his next opponent, the Columbus Lions. With one quick hit, football suddenly seemed much less important. Smith spent much of the night at Halifax Medical Center with Javon's family and teammates. The hour long ride home with wife Nicola was eerily silent. Smith is not working today to mourn the loss of this great young man and a fabulous football player.

The GhostRiders plan to honor Javon at practice tonight.

GhostRiders owner David Doebler added, "Our most sincere condolences go out to Javon's family. They will be in our thoughts and our prayers."
