Elbert Jovante Woods, the 16-year old son of former Bengals running back Ickey Woods, died Saturday evening three days after suffering a massive asthma attack.
Jovante was set to begin his junior season on the Princeton High School’s varsity team and had a 3.8 GPA. He suffered the attack at home in the evening, after having practiced with the team that morning.
It’s a truly heartbreaking story. We send our condolences and best wishes to the entire Woods family during this difficult time.
