Tragic Loss (not just for the Patriots..)

Filed under: football,News — Becky @ 7:46 am

But for New Orleans as well.

Marquise Hill drowned on Lake Ponchartrain Sunday night. He was a defensive end for the New England Patriots, but he was much more than that.

He spent most of his time and money helping to rebuild his hometown of New Orleans, LA. Even in his last moments, he was helping to calm the woman he was with “I spoke with the girl and her mother this morning and they said he helped her stay calm. He ended up saving her life, keeping her calm until she could grab onto a buoy,” said Elias , who added that Hill can swim, but was not wearing a life preserver.” ( Link to quote)
