Former Wildcat Marvin Stone Dies

The agent for Marvin Stone has confirmed the former UK Wildcat and Louisville Cardinal has died.
Hirant Manakian, who is listed as the agent for Stone, says that Stone collapsed at halftime of a game in Saudi Arabia and died. He was 27-years-old.
Manakian tells 27 Sportsfirst that Stone's family has been notified.
Stone had been playing in Cyprus but signed with a Saudi Arabian team on Monday.
In another twist, Stone's team, Al-Ittihad, was playing against Ohud, a team that features another former Wildcat, Jules Camara, on its roster.
Stone played 2 years at UK before transferring to Louisville.
Funeral Arrangements have not been made, and it is not clear what caused the collapse. Stone had scored 11 points in the first half of the game.

    I am so very sorry for the family and friends of Marvin Stone. My son, a football player, died suddenly 20 months at the age of 20 from a heart problem that we never knew he had. It is just devastating and I am so sorry to hear of another family experiencing such pain.

    On the Election. I don't understand why people fail to realize that it is our present politicians that are responsible for the shape this country is in. They are to blame for the poor economy as even a blind person can see they have done it for self gain and sold out our country for the mighty dollar to put in their pockets. They don't even care about their grandchildren growing up in such a mess. God Bless America and forgive them for what they have done. What has happened to the true American hero? We have no choice for president and are headed for no choice on alot of our American traditions. All politicians need to go home, get a job, let someone else restore the american dream. As for president, we will have none as those running are NOT qualified. What is wrong with the american way of life? If you are in politics and have stock in oil companies, would you put a stop to the crude oil prices? God forbid. As for the state budget, Frankfort ought to be ashamed of itself.
