Incoming Iowa State DB recovering from gunshot wound

Iowa State

Most incoming college players will spend the next few months trying to get acquainted with their new playbook and teammates. Incoming Iowa State defensive back Kamari Cotton-Moya is just lucky to be alive after coming close to being seriously injured by a gunshot.

In an interview with the Ames Tribune, Cotton-Moya said he and a friend were shot while leaving a friend’s house in East Bakersfield, Calif. early Sunday morning. Cotton-Moya was grazed in the shoulder, but his friend was hit in the face and shoulder.

I was in the wrong place at the wrong time,” Cotton-Moya told the paper. “It wasn’t on purpose.”

Both he and his friend are thankfully okay, though Cotton-Moya said he was more concerned about his friend’s condition than his own. The incoming DB says he’s already back to lifting weights and is a “full-go” for this summer.

Still, that had to have been a terrifying experience. It’s just good to hear Cotton-Moya is alright.

    Hoping for a speedy recovery for both young men. And the capture and full prosecution to the coward who did this act.

    Uhhhh, I don’t know where your were or who you were with, but I would quit going to that location for sure. Here is hoping for a full-recovery for your friend. If you are back to lifting, than you are well on your way to recovery. Be safe and and SMART!
