New Mexico Fullback Drowns

Ja’Mine Rozzell, considered New Mexico’s fullback of the future, drowned after diving into a pool of water in the Jemez River. State police said Rozzell did not know how to swim.

Capt. Rudy Acosta, a state police spokesman, said Rozzell was with four other people when the accident occurred. According to Acosta, the other four individuals had been diving into the pool and Rozzell eventually also dived into the water.

“It looked like it was a clear dive and it didn’t appear he hit anything,” Acosta said. “It looked like possibly the current pulled him under a (rock) overhang. That’s where the body was found.”
