California University of Pennsylvania football player Jamain Stephens, 20, has died.
The reports out are saying the Vulcans senior defensive lineman died from complications from COVID-19.
Stephens played in 32 games for California University. Many will remember his father Jamain Stephens Sr. Who played several years in the NFL.
The D2 powerhouse had shut down football in the fall and the kids were not expected to have a season. Please keep his family in your prayers.
His father Jamain Sr. Was a first round pick in the 1996 NFL Draft out of North Carolina A&T. His father would end up playing for the Steelers and Bengals in his career. I just please ask that you pray for Jamain Sr, and the rest of his family.
There are now reports that will not say what his cause of death is, but it is unfortunate no matter what. Please keep his family in your prayers.
On Wednesday, the school updated the post, saying it did not have the cause of death.
“When we heard the news of Jamain Stephens’ death, we as a community were devastated,” Brother Tony Baginski, FSC, Principal of Central Catholic, said in the Wednesday statement. “He was well loved by everyone in our community, and in an effort to get the news out about his death in a timely manner, we mistakenly attributed his death without official confirmation on cause of death. We had obtained the information about his passing from close friends of Jamain, who reached out to us with the news. We apologize for this error, and this information has since been removed from our Facebook announcement dated 9/8/2020. At this time, we do not have official confirmation on his cause of death.”
