O. J. Murdock, of NFL’s Tennessee Titans killed himself in front of his former high school where he was a football and track star. Murdock signed with the Titans last year but never played as an injury sidelined him.
Police found Murdock with a self-inflicted gunshot wound in front of Middleton High School Monday morning. He died two hours later at a Tampa hospital.
Murdock was ranked among the top football players in Florida and the nation in 2005 when he was a senior at Middleton High School, according to his biography on the Titans website. He was also a star sprinter on his school’s track team.
His college career started at the University of South Carolina, but he transferred to Fort Hays State after playing in just four games as a freshman and being redshirted. He then moved to Pearl River Community College, where he was a criminal justice major. CNN
