Dimitri McKee was called “Big Meech” because he was one of the biggest kids on the football field. The 6’4, 385-pound star football for the Lee Generals died last night at the age of 17.
Dimitri was a monstrous man and according to reports, the senior star football player passed out after Tuesday’s practice in Montgomery.
The coaches noticed that Meech was having a problem and put ice on his back. This happened around 7:45 and he was at the hospital by 8:15 pm.
The Alabama High School Athletic Association released a statement:
“Our heartfelt condolences go out to the McKee family and to Dimitri’s coaches and teammates at Lee High School, its faculty, and student body for their tragic loss,” said AHSAA Executive Director Alvin Briggs. “We offer our deepest sympathies and pray God will sustain each of them in this time of such great sadness.”
