This is really sad news as I just featured Jason on his video on How to Improve Your 40 Yard Dash
I was also in the works on promoting Sparqtraining.com latest training video involving Jon Drummond
From Rivals.com newswire:
Jason Hadeed, age 33, and founder-owner of Elite Athlete Training Systems, was fatally shot late Friday night, Feb. 8, in the 200 block of King Farm Boulevard in Rockville, according to Montgomery County Police.
Rockville police responded to a report at 10:15 p.m. Friday and found Hadeed lying on the ground, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.
Hadeed was taken to an area hospital where was pronounced dead, according to police.
Michael Wayne Adams, 44, who lives in the 200 block of King Farm Boulevard, was taken into custody by the Fairfax (Va.) police department following a 911 call from an individual who provided the suspect’s name and who wanted to turn himself in.
Police later learned that Adams was an acquaintance of Hadeed, but the motive for the murder is still under investigation, according to police.
Hadeed was 33 years old and is widely considered one of the nation’s top trainers.
Hadeed founded E.A.T.S. in 1995 and trained several area athletes that have gone on to play at D-I colleges.
A former strength and conditioning coach with both the Washington Redskins and Baltimore Ravens, Hadeed was named as one of the top 100 Trainers in America by Men’s Journal two years in a row in 2004 and 2005 – he was also nominated this year as one of the nation’s top trainers.
Our thoughts and prayers goes out to Jason’s friends and family.
