Talk about a horrible tragedy IV the grid iron. XXV year old Kansas City Chiefs Linebacker Jovan Belcher killed the mother of his child, XXII year old Kasandra Perkins in front of his own mother. He then drove over to his practice stadium (Arrowhead Stadium) in Kansas City, Missouri & killed himself with his gun in front of his coach & his general manager. Thus leaving his child with no parents at all.
This shows that doctors & team psychologists & therapists, no matter what level the athletes are playing at need to make sure that they are well not just physically, but spiritually & psychologically as well. A healthy body on the field leads to a healthy mind & vice versa. Jovan, a University Of Maine graduate earned his degree in child development & family relations. Yet ironically, he couldn't seek peace in his own family & destroyed it IVever by his actions. Jovan might have had the technical knowledge to work on a family plan, but to kill his spouse in front of his own mother, he must have been terribly psychologically damaged. Let us hope we can learn from this tragedy to help other students who are athletes to keep a level head about themselves. Hopefully future incidents of this nature can thus be prevented.
