Dwayne Schintzius dies at 43

Yes he was a character on and off the court. Dwayne Schintzius was a talented 7'2 center for the Florida Gators basketball team from 1986-1990. I remember seeing him play in person. It was the first major college basketball game I went too. My brother was graduating from Florida and the Gators were playing South Florida.

Anyway, he passed away at the young age of 43 from cancer. 43 is way to young and kind of scary since it is closer to my age. I am sure he will be missed by Florida fans, basketball fans, family and friends. Here is a better article on him on Gator Zone.

Here is some video of him in action via Youtue..

I'll be back tomorrow with another A to Z post...
