The Sarasota Millionaires are hit with another team tragedy... On the early morning hours Thursday rookie wide receiver Darian Everett was pronounced dead on the scene of a horrific car accident. Electrical crews were busy replacing a wooden utility pole that was sheered off when Darian Everett's car crashed into it. Everett, 20, was killed and his two passengers were critically injured. One of the electrical workers, who had been there for hours, noted that the force of the collision tore the motor from Everett's vintage 1972 Chevrolet Nova.

Everett had started participating in the teams workout and practices since the start of the new season. "He was humble and respectful never losing his cool or talked back, etc. He had asked me if the #81 jersey had been taken, he wanted to wear that number to represent our head coach Ernest Givins who wore that number during his NFL days," said co owner Bethsaida Williams. "The day before his death he called me twice, and we also met with each other so that I could give him some paperwork. We talked about our preseason game this Saturday and just a bunch of other little football things, I would never had thought that would be the last time I would see or speak with him, I'm heartbroken". The Sarasota Millionaires will continue to keep Darian's friends and family in our prayers.

The Sarasota Millionaires have been struck with tragedy twice before this. On October 24, 2008 CPL Delvis Fernandez was shot and killed as he exited a local convenience store.
And on January 15, 2011 Thomas "TJ" Mills was also tragically shot and killed as he waited outside a different local convenience store. Both suspects in the shootings were caught, tried, and convicted.
