Star WR recruit for GT dies
Looking forward to turning the page on a bad year for the ACC and GT especially.




Quote:Georgia Tech signee Bryce Gowdy, a talented wide receiver prospect from Deerfield Beach, Fla., died early Monday morning when he was struck by a freight train. He was 17.

After graduating from Deerfield Beach High in December, Gowdy was to enroll early at Tech and begin his first semester Jan. 6. He had signed his letter of intent with Tech Dec. 18. Only Sunday evening, hours before his death, he had sent out a tweet reading “Family matters, can’t wait to get to the ATL soon!”Gowdy was struck by a train around 4 a.m. Monday in Deerfield Beach, about 15 miles north of Fort Lauderdale, according to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office. Gowdy was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he died. The fatality was under investigation by both Broward Sheriff’s Office homicide detectives and the Broward County medical examiner’s office. In a report published before Gowdy was identified, a representative of Florida East Coast Railway told WPLG-TV in Miami that “the pedestrian jumped in front of the train.”

The Gowdy and GT family have my condolences. Seems like a family problem depressed him.

I would like to give my sincere condolences to Bryce Gowdy's family and the Georgia Tech team and fans on his passing. Life is definitely more important than football.

This is incredibly tragic, and bewildering.

Peace to his family, and friends.

Very sad. My heart goes out to his family - losing a child is a terrible thing.

Article in the paper this morning said the death was ruled a suicide.

That is just too sad. Its terrible that these young folks have things going on in their lives that make their lives seem so miserable that they dont seem to be able to go on.
