The Darling tragedy 10 years later
Saturday, February 26th will mark the 10 year anniversary since Florida State freshman linebacker Devaughn Darling died. The 18 year old collapsed while taking part in mat drills and died the same day of an apparent "cardiac arrhythmia". A lawsuit ensued and a $2 million settlement was agreed on in 2004. However, this story isn't about the lawsuit or the settlement, it's about Devaughn's brother Devard who has had a great deal of success on and off the field, but has done so without his brother and best friend. It's been a long, tough decade for the Darling family. But through it all, his love for Florida State has never faded.
