The Sad Story of Wyatt Sexton

Wyatt Sexton's playing career is over. Sexton was in line to become Florida State's starting quarterback in 2005, then a sequence of bizarre incidents put his childhood dream of playing for the Seminoles on hold. He was suspended last June for refusing to submit to a random drug test, then was found by police a few weeks later on a street near his Tallahassee home, rambling incoherently and claiming at times to be "God" and "the son of God." Less than a month later, his family announced that the former honors student was suffering from advanced stages of Lyme disease. Although Sexton had quietly returned to classes and the practice field as the Seminoles prepared for the Orange Bowl, doctors have advised him to end his football dream (some registration).
