you are sadly...spot on. in the news tonight a close friend of his indicated that junior said when he died he wanted his brain donated to science to look into concusions and the effect from football.
it seems there were other football players who had died before him that had done the very same thing. needless to say the news was very sad this night.
they also found a message in the sand across from his house on the beach that said "i will miss you mom and dad"
