Devaughn Darling

Devaughn Darling was an American athlete and Florida State University football player. The Seminole linebacker was credited with 11 tackles and one sack in seven games during the 2000 season. Devaughn was expected to move into the FSU starting lineup the next season.

His sudden death was said to be related to the hereditary condition, sickle-cell trait. An increasing amount of research has linked sickle-cell trait to sudden death during strenuous exercise.

While tragedy was certainly not unknown to the Florida State football team, it was the first time a death resulted during an organized school activity.

His twin brother, Devard Darling, was a receiver for the Florida State Seminoles, Washington State, and later, wide receiver for the NFL Baltimore Ravens.
