Thoughts and Prayers to Smiley James (from UM Facebook Page)

 

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The University of Miami football program canceled all afternoon activities after learning that the mother of sophomore running back Mike James (Haines City, Fla.) passed away in a fatal car accident Monday morning.

 

“He is a member of our family,” said interim head coach Jeff Stoutland.  “He grieves and we grieve.  He hurts and we hurt.  We are all here to support Mike and his family in any way possible.”

 

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to Mike and his family,” said Director of Athletics Kirby Hocutt. “Family is the foundation of our football program, and today the entire Hurricane family is grieving with Mike. “

 

James’ sister and nephew were also involved in the car accident and are currently hospitalized. 

 

James left the Coral Gables campus Monday afternoon to attend to his family.
