Sad news

This is tragic news.

Xavier Godard, a star running back and former state track champion from Cedar Shoals, died in an accidental drowning this past Wednesday.

Godard was, without a doubt, one of my all-time favorite athletes that I covered. He was just a great, great kid all the way around.

I did a nice feature story on him back in 2001 and also caught a nice moment of him in the 2002 Boys Track and Field Championships.

The world is a little smaller today without him.
