Nick Seymour, the assistant coach for the Franklin Pierce Sprint Football team, passed away due to injuries sustained from a car accident on September 27th.  

Seymour was a member of the football coaching staff for four out of the six years that the team has been a sport at Franklin Pierce. Rashad Watson, the head coach, referred to Seymour as a “good guy, who was dedicated, and possessed an awkward brilliance.” Seymour possessed a sense of humor that his coworkers and those around him referred to as “unexpected.” 

Seymour had a stoic personality, and seriousness he possessed on the exterior, said Watson, to only be a part of him.

“We were shocked by his passing,” said defensive line assistant coach James Willette.

The Seymour family and the Franklin Pierce sprint football team are in close contact.  

A memorial service is planned for Seymour on October 16th.
