Yeah so sad and still young , wonder if what happened will be revealed, a article from Florida which is likely how most people found out originally only said it was sudden and his friend said he was Healthy . He was a PE teacher and football coach at a School in Florida.

He was on the Argos in 2011 when the 'Extra Yard' series was shot. O'Shea was ST coach at that time and he said 'Lin-J Shell is a starter on our defense plus he's on three special teams'. They did a side feature of a couple of guys had a hobby of working on cars, I'm pretty sure Lin-J was one of them.
