Default Florida walk-on killed in motorcycle crash

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A walk-on defensive back for the Florida Gators was killed early Friday when the motorcycle he was driving hit a median at a high rate of speed, police said.

Michael Guilford, a 19-year-old redshirt freshman from Quincy, was not wearing a helmet. Neither was passenger Ashley Slonina, a Florida junior from Lynn Haven who also died in the crash.

The two were riding a 1998 silver Kawasaki motorcycle when it struck a median near campus around 1 a.m., police spokesman Lt. Keith Kameg said. Kameg said officers estimated the motorcycle was traveling 25 to 30 mph over the speed limit. Police were awaiting autopsy and toxicology reports and investigating a report that the students had been at a gathering at a nearby apartment complex before the crash, Kameg said.
Crisis counselors were available to meet with students who knew Guilford and Slonina.

Florida coach Urban Meyer, whose team does not play this week, was expected to release a statement later Friday.
Guilford, nicknamed "Sunshine" because his long blonde hair resembled that of Ronnie "Sunshine" Bass in the football movie "Remember the Titans," was named one of the scout team players of the week following Florida's win over Mississippi earlier this season. Guilford also mimicked Ohio State quarterback Troy Smith during preparation for the Bowl Championship Series national title game in January

Sad story. From everything I have heard down here they were both good kids.

How many reminders do people need to start wearing a helmet??

The same number of reminders for people who drive drunk.

It's all so senseless.

Sad.

I cant even imagine not wearing my helmet when riding. I have done it a handful of times but its an extremely nerve racking experience.
