Victor Ellis Passes Away

New, 8 comments

In some very sad news, former Alabama linebacker Victor Ellis has passed away. He was 28.

I'm sure you all remember Victor as a 'Bama linebacker in the late 1990's and early 2000's. After graduating from Alabama in 2002, he was working for the university until several months ago when he was surprisingly diagnosed with a very rare and deadly form of cancer, and was told by doctors that he had a mere few months to live. Victor fought hard to the end, but ultimately succumbed to cancer tonight. Arrangements are apparently being made in Chattanooga, Ellis' hometown.

If you have a few bucks to spare, I urge you to donate them to the Victor Ellis Fund for Cancer Research.
