Former West Forsyth Player Fights Cancer, Loves College

ATHENS, Ga. - Former West Forsyth Wolverine Trey Rood wasn't able to continue playing football in college, but his incredibly strong will and support system means he's on campus loving life.

Trey had surgery for melanoma when he was only ten, then went on with school and football.  Once again in his teenage years doctors spotted trouble.  Still he was ready for a big senior season.  But then, big trouble.

The tumors were so big and wide spread that he and his family made a decision to go to Germany for radically experimental treatments.  He played a few downs in a few games, but mostly lent support to his teammates during his senior season.

GAINESVILLE: 15-year-old boy found dead in backyard

GAINESVILLE, Ga. -- A Gainesville couple has been charged with cruelty to children during the investigation into the death of a 15-year-old neighbor boy.

Forsyth County Sheriff's Office investigators responded to a 911 call Monday morning that said the teenage male, later identified as Trey Spencer of Gainesville, was laying in the backyard of a home on Walnut Cove Court, and was unresponsive.

Spencer was transported to Northside Hospital Forsyth, where he was pronounced dead.

A 14-year-old friend of Spencer's who lived at the home told investigators the boys spent about 5 hours Sunday evening drinking Bourbon, smoking pot, huffing dust cleaner and taking Klonopin tablets, a prescription drug for anxiety.

The 14-year-old said he thought Spencer had left around 10:30 Sunday night buy awoke to find him unconscious in the back yard.

The teen alerted his parents who had just returned from an out-of-town trip to Saint Simons Island.
