Wow.

I've read about some of the enlarged heart problems of the large pro athletes in basketball and football. I wonder if this is another example of that issue?

Yes, it is a shame.....the heart is a muscle and when heavy demand is put on it, such as pro sports, it will get big/strong enough to carry the load....just like thigh muscles or biceps. Then when you retire and no longer need all that muscle mass it would seem to deteriate unless you stay active in some way....

DorGunR, I'm not really big on Pro Sports,Boxing aside, but R. White seemed to be an all around good man. He had his battles just like all of us have had, and turned his life around, many of us don't get a second chance at life. But he did! He will be remembered as one of the roughest NFL players to ever put on the pads on the side of defence.
Some stats.
Here's a little sample of what he turned out to become,God Bless You Reggie!
