Former College Football Player Arrested After His Teammate Dies of an Opioid Overdose

Seven months after a promising defensive lineman failed to turn up to practice and was found dead by his concerned teammates, a former player from his college team has been arrested.

On Friday, one-time Rice University football player Stuart “Mooch” Mouchantaf was charged with supplying 21-year-old Blain Padgett pills containing an opioid 10,000 times more powerful than morphine.

The 25-year-old ex-player was allegedly preparing to flee the country before officers took him into custody on Thursday, ABC 13 reports.

The arrest follows the March overdose death of teammate Padgett. The college athlete allegedly believed he was buying Hydrocodone, a prescription narcotic painkiller, from Mouchantaf,  Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said in a statement Friday.

Instead, the footballer took pills that contained Carfentanil — an opioid whose legal amount is reportedly “invisible to the human eye” and was originally intended to be an elephant tranquilizer, the D.A. alleges.

In June, three months after his passing,  the Harris County Medical Examiner’s Office determined that the toxic effects of Carfentanil — which reportedly causes the brain to stop breathing — caused Padgett to die in his sleep, ABC 13 reports.

Padgett’s parents, Mical and Windi, believed their son knew better than to take drugs from someone else.

“He knew that he should not have been taking it, but he did so,” Mical told the outlet, noting that the poor decision “cost him his life.”

“I know if he was here, he would say, ‘Hey, I take responsibility for this,’” Mical continued.

Windi added: “Blain knew about choices like drinking and driving and knew about choices, but I think that this is something that is fairly new, at least it’s new to us, that you don’t take anything from anyone unless a doctor has prescribed it for you, period.”

The young men played together in 2015 when Mouchantaf was a redshirt senior and Padgett was a freshman, reports USA Today. During his three seasons at Rice University, Mouchantaf totaled 51 tackles. Meanwhile, Padgett was considered “a key player” with a “commanding presence” for the team’s defensive front-line.

Following Mouchantaf arrest, Rice University released a statement to the news channel, thanking authorities for their work on the case.

“We’re deeply saddened to hear about the latest developments in the investigation in the death of Blain Padgett, whose family continues to be foremost in our thoughts,” they wrote. “We want to thank the Houston Police Department investigators assigned to this case for their hard work in the wake of this tragedy. In light of the fact that charges have just been filed, any further comment would be inappropriate at this time.”

After Mouchantaf was taken into custody and questioned on Thursday, a judge set his bond at $ 250,000 once police discovered that he had purchased a one-way ticket to Lebanon.

According to ABC 13, Mouchantaf — who has family in the country and is now considered a flight risk — must wear an ankle monitor and give up his U.S. passport.

The former player has been charged with delivery of a controlled substance causing death and the second-degree felony could result in a prison sentence of anywhere from five to 99 years if Mouchantaf is found guilty, the D.A. said.

At this time, it is not clear if he has retained legal counsel. He is due to appear in court on Monday.

Can Gisele Throw a Perfect Spiral? Hubby Tom Brady Dishes on Her Football Skills

Gisele Bünchen knows how to strut her stuff on the catwalk, but has she picked up a thing or two about playing football from her husband Tom Brady?

In an exclusive interview with PEOPLE to promote his book, The TB12 Method, the New England Patriots quarterback revealed that while his wife can throw a throw a football, he doesn’t like her practicing her perfect spiral too often because of her shoulder issues.

“She can a little bit, but I’m always careful with her shoulder. Her shoulders, they’re so … she’s had I would say some injury issues with her shoulders, so I actually don’t like her throwing it too much,” Brady, 40, tells PEOPLE.

The supermodel, 37, previously told PEOPLE she goes to Brady’s TB12 Sports Center for rehabilitation, adding that while she loves extreme sports, she tends to dislocate her shoulders from that kind of physical activity.

But Brady tells PEOPLE there are plenty of other sports he enjoys playing with his wife and children.

Brady and Bünchen share two children together: 8-year-old son Benjamin and 5-year-old daughter Vivian Lake. The NFL star is also father to 10-year-old son John Edward Thomas Moynahan, from a previous relationship with actress Bridget Moynahan.

“We definitely play other sports with the kids, a lot of soccer in our backyard, a lot of swimming, a lot of surfing,” says Brady. “I love playing with them even if, obviously I’ve had much more experience than them, I still love being with them and playing with them. Anything that we’re doing together I really love to do.”

The quarterback also tells PEOPLE he wants to continue playing football “for a while” — and has the full backing of his wife of 9 years, who just “wants me to be happy.”

“At the end of the day, she’s been such a supportive wife, and been so supportive of my career,” says Brady. “I think she wants me to continue to do what I love and continue taking care of myself and, you know, make sure I’m still really present for my kids when they need me and still available to everyone in the family because our kids aren’t getting any younger.”

He adds, “Again, I still love playing and hopefully I can play for a while.”

Tom Brady Opens Up About Super Bowl Loss and Balancing Football and Family

Along with giving a deeper look at his family, Tom Brady is looking to answer one question with his new Facebook Watch docu-series: “What does it really take for a 40-year-old to play in the NFL?”

In a candid interview with ABC’s Michael Strahan, the New England Patriots quarterback opened up about the six-episode series, Tom vs Time, and continuing to play football at 40 years old.

“There’s a real love for the sport, a love for the game, and a love for the competition … it’s really something I really relish,” Brady said. “As long as I feel good, as long as I continue to work hard and make the commitment — it requires a lot of discipline, that’s one thing God had given me when I was young.”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

He also opened up about his team’s loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in this year’s Super Bowl.

“I think you realize the sun comes up the next morning, your life goes on but, you know, those games live with you for the rest of your life,” Brady said. “That’s part of being an athlete. That’s part of being in a very competitive sport.”

“I’m proud of our efforts throughout the year,” he continued. “We overcame a lot of adversity, like you always do in order to get to that game. But we just came up a little bit short.”

In the docu-series, fans also get an intimate look at the athlete’s balancing act between football and family.

“I have a wife that is very, aspires to be a lot of things and she travels a lot. My oldest son lives here in New York,” he said. “Three kids and you’re just always trying to juggle and you want to be there for them and you want to be there for the hockey games and the soccer games, but you also realize the level of commitment it takes to give as much as you can to the team that needs you.”

“I think most professionals probably feel the same way,” he added. “Sometimes it gets out of balance, and you’ve got to figure out how to bring it back to a point where it feels great for everybody involved.”

Brady has five championships under his belt, making him the first quarterback in NFL history to boast the accomplishment. He told Strahan that he’s managed to last so long in the sport with hard work and determination.

“When your priorities are in order then you can make decisions based on what your priorities are,” he said. “I believe you can extend your career as a lot of athletes are trying to do now.”

RELATED: Gisele Bündchen & Tom Brady’s Adorable Family Photo Album

However, Brady admitted he hasn’t always made the best choices in his athletic career.

“I would say I was a very late bloomer through high school and early into college … my routine and the things that I did weren’t very good. They weren’t very conducive to my goals,” Brady told Strahan.

RELATED VIDEO: Gisele Bündchen Shares Super-Romantic Smooch With Husband Tom Brady at Sister’s Wedding

“It got to a point early in my career where I didn’t envision myself being able to continue to play because my arm hurt so bad all the time.”

The athlete said he made several changes to his routine, tweaks that have landed him a lengthy career. And the pro footballer said he’s happy to let fans into his world.

“I felt like I really wanted to show people all the things I had learned over the years; all the things that were really important to me,” he said. “And show some of the fans — and a lot of the patriots fans — really what it takes to continue to try to achieve at a really high level.”

According to the statement, she will be taken to an area hospital for an evaluation. Authorities are not releasing the location where she was found. 

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

A college football reporter has been reported missing after she texted her roommate that a suspicious man had been following her, according to authorities.

Courtney Roland, 29, was last seen at 4 p.m. local time on Saturday afternoon after covering a Texas A&M football camp in Houston, Texas. Later that evening, she apparently went out in her Jeep Cherokee. At 12:30 A.M. early Sunday morning, she texted a roommate saying that she had been followed by a suspicious man in a blue truck, the Houston Police Department told PEOPLE.

According to her texts, the man followed her all the way home, but allegedly drove off when she got out.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Roland’s roommate told local outlet Click 2 Houston that she and Roland were supposed to meet up on Sunday, but that she never heard from Roland again.

Police found Roland’s Jeep late Sunday. Her phone, purse, iPad, computer and credit cards were also found.

Roland’s mother told Click 2 Houston that she received a text from Roland’s phone saying, “Hello the owner of this phone Courtney. I am buying an iPad.”

Houston Police confirmed to PEOPLE that they are continuing to investigate the case, and will release more information as it emerges.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Roland was last seen wearing an orange Remington hat and a camouflage fleece sweater. She drives a 2015 white Jeep Cherokee with the license plate number HZC7778.

How International Football Started: Scotland v England 1872


England v Scotland is the world football’s oldest rivalry, and this fascinating book tells the story of how it all began. Sports historian Andy Mitchell, former head of communications at the Scottish FA, has researched the events that led to the creation of a global phenomenon. He brings to life the players who set the ball rolling in first international in Glasgow on 30 November 1872 and describes how this game was not just a beginning but also marked the end of two years of arguments – which included five experimental contests in London and even sparked the first rugby international. For historians of the game and anyone interested in football’s origins, this is essential reading.

Cop Spotted Playing Football With Kids: ‘We Need To Earn Back Respect From The Community’

For this cop, serving the community means making a meaningful connection with its residents.

C.J. Mullinax, a police officer in Bennettsville, South Carolina, decided to take some time out to throw around a pigskin with kids in a housing development area, according to ABC15. The delightful interaction was caught on camera by Lorenzo Adams, who was driving by at the time, and shared the video on Facebook, this past Tuesday.

The post quickly went viral, with almost 170,000 shares as of Friday afternoon. And while the clip has captured hearts across the Internet, the officer maintains that engaging with kids is just part of his job.

“That’s how you gain the community’s trust,” Mullinax explained to ABC News. “Not all cops are bad, but because of what some bad cops have done, we need to earn back respect from the community.”

The policeman told ABC15 that he was on patrol when he saw the kids waving to him, and ended up being the quarterback in a game of football. Though law enforcement may not be closely associated with fun and games, Bennettsville Police Department Police Chief Larry McNeil said he encourages interactions like this.

“I believe you can do so much more chasing a kid while holding a basketball or football than chasing a kid while holding a baton or gun,” McNeil told ABC News. “I always tell my guys they can do more with what’s between their ears — their brain — than the holster on their side.”

Mullinax took to Facebook to express his thanks for the outpouring of support he’s received.

“I’ve always wanted to make a difference,” he wrote on the social networking site. “That was my priority in this career decision. I’m so blessed to be touching so many people by just playing football with some kids.”

In the movie, which is (loosely) based on a true story, Coach Herman Boone takes his team, newly integrated and struggling to bond, on a run and then proceeds to give what is easily one of the top three inspirational sports pump-up speeches at Gettysburg National Military Park — although reportedly, shots were filmed at Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park, which makes sense because a lot of the movie was shot in Georgia. 

The Replacements

You could visit Ohio Stadium, since Keanu Reeves' character, Shane Falco, was a former Ohio State QB who choked in his final game and was never able to go pro, or you could visit the Baltimore Ravens' home M&T Bank Stadium, also known as "Nextel Stadium" home of the "Washington Sentinals". Just don't expect any strippers-turned-cheerleaders.

Any Given Sunday

If the NFL doesn't have enough drama for you, then inserting yourself into the semi-alternate universe of Any Given Sunday, where the AFFA league rules and you can see the fictional California Crusaders play at, ironically, Florida's Sun Life Stadium. The Orange Bowl and Texas Stadium, where the fictional Miami Sharks and Dallas Knights played, respectively, have been demolished. It's like they don't even care about the fake history behind the fields!

Jerry Maguire

First, swing by Dorothy's House, and then after your agent shows you the money you can go treat yourself and your date to a nice meal at Paco's Tacos Cantina — and be sure to sit by the fish tank like Jerry and Dorothy if you can swing it.

Varsity Blues

Attempt to recreate the experience of being a super popular Varsity football star by visiting some of the Austin filming locations for the high school classic. The Landing Strip Gentleman's Club is a great place to blow off steam when your controlling coach is being too tough, or if you're not into the strip club scene (but do keep in mind, these are high school boys we're talking about) you can always grab a burger at Top Notch Hamburgers. Whipped cream bikini and terrible fake accents not included.

The Waterboy

If you're a fan of Adam Sandler movies (and don't think that he is, in fact, the devil) you can visit the real-life stadium that served as the home field for the South Central Lousiana State Mud Dogs:  Spec Martin Stadium in DeLand, Florida. Or, if your husband leaves you for a voodoo priestess he met in New Orleans, you can always get advice on the best way to exact revenge at  Marie Laveau's House of Voodoo.

Friday Night Lights (TV)

Clear eyes, full heart, can't lose. Okay, that wasn't always the case for the Dillon Panthers, but you can pay tribute to the TV show by visiting the Panther's Field (Friday Night Lights TV Show) where some of the games were shot (in the early season when it was actually about football, at least). In fact, the reason the Dillon Panthers were even called the Panthers in the first place is because that was the mascot of the high school where they were filming. 

Friday Night Lights (Movie)

The movie version portrays Odessa as a tiny little one-horse town, but that's not exactly the case: even back when the movie takes place, there were more than 250,000 people in the greater Odessa area. That adorable little downtown street from the first scene of the trailer is actually Manhattan, Kansas.

Rudy 

Of course, there's nowhere to better experience this iconic football movie than at Notre Dame Stadium (seriously, duh.) You can cheer on the underdog or just dream of hearing the crowd chanting your name as your beloved teammates carry you off the field (is that so much to ask?), but even spending even a few hours on Notre Dame's campus will give you an idea of just how much these fans love football. And make sure to say hi to Touchdown Jesus!

Blind Side

While this high school football movie takes place in Memphis, it was mostly filmed in Georgia, including (oddly enough) at Agnes Scott College, Decatur's women's college. But, (spoiler alert, but not really since this is based on a true story and we all know how it ends) the happy ending sees Michael Oher playing for Ole Miss at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.

Longest Yard

We can't be sure what the inmates at Georgia State Prison are up to at any given moment, but I guess there's a chance that Burt Reynolds is leading a ragtag team of prisoners in a high-stakes football exhibition game against the guards (we're pretending that the 2005 Adam Sandler remake didn't happen. Plus, two Adam Sandler movies in one list is a bit much).

Brian’s Song

Contemplate one of the saddest made-for-TV movies ever (seriously, think about how it was based on a true story and try to not cry) made with a thoughtful walk (we won't tell anyone if you shed a tear or two) along Lakeshore Drive near the  John G. Shedd Aquarium.

Little Giants

Fumblerooski, fumblerooski! If you forgot just how dramatic pee-wee football can be, relive Little Giants at the field at John Burroughs High School in Burbank. Now, if only all pee-wee coaches could be more like Rick Moranis…

Has This Husband Taken His Football Fandom Too Far? | The Oprah Winfrey Show | Oprah Winfrey Network

Original airdate: November 24, 1993

Cathy Crispino’s husband, Joe, was what some people would call a ‘sports fanatic.’ He had four (tube) televisions in his living room alongside the Sportscaster, a machine that beamed scores directly into homes long before phones could fit into pockets. Suffice it to say, Cathy was none too happy with Joe’s pigskin addiction.
