    Aug. 1, 2001: NFL player Korey Stringer dies after suffering heatstroke while working out in hot and humid conditions with the Minnesota Vikings.
    Remember this one well, It was just about when I really started paying attention to football. As the earlier post said, RIP.

    :'( :'( :'( can't believe this summer will already be seven years since his passing... can still feel it here in Mankato, and you can definatly see the changes at training camp over the past few years.
    Hell, last year even if a fan said he was getting dehydrated they'd throw you a Gatorade water bottle.
    Plus every single players dorm room was equipped with a mini fridge completely stocked with water & gatorade
