Four football players were killed in a car accident this week. According to South Pittsburg High School’s twitter four players of their football team were killed in a car accident and another is in critical condition.

According to the report, only one of the players were wearing their seat beats at the time of the crash, and that is the young man in critical condition.

The school system and CBS affiliate WDEF reported that the deceased men were identified as Jamal Allen, 20, Jayven Martin, 22, Sayveon Martin, 20 and Jailyn Pellam, 16. Officials reportedly did not identify the fifth person who was injured.


Jayven Martin played defensive line for me and was a 2018 SPHS graduate. His younger brother, Saveon played offensive lineman and was a 2021 graduate. Jamal Allen was an all state defensive end and also a 2021 graduate. Jamal, was head coach Wes Stone’s little cousin whom he had coached since he was 6 years old. Jailyn Pellam was a member of the 2021 Class 1A State Championship team and was a rising junior two way starter on our 2022 team.

All five of the kids in the vehicle were football players for South Pittsburg High School. A GoFundMe was set up for the families of the young men killed in the crash. Please donate if you can, any amount helps.
