Florida and West Virginia Football Players Hurt in Shooting


Three young men are nursing injuries from a shooting Christmas Eve in Immokalee, Florida that scared the crap out of them all.

Two of those three are college football players: 19-year old J.C Jackson, a freshman WR and DB at the University of Florida and 20-year old Jacky Marcellus is a wide receiver at West Virginia.

Both were injured, though not seriously in the shooting which happened in the car of Marcellus's 21-year old brother Jackinson. Jackinson Marcellus was shot in the face by an unidentified assailant near the Crestview Apartments.

All three are from Immokalee and based on reports, were friends who were just out and about that night. Police have not offered a motive for the shooting.

No word yet on Jackson or the younger Marcellus being able to play in their teams bowl games. Both were in town on Christmas Break.
