James A. McIntosh was not just any lecturer.

The 6-foot-7 FBI agent was a basketball standout at Villanova University and considered a role model for many of the younger athletes he spoke to about the evils of drugs, the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

McIntosh died on June 29 after a battle with prostate cancer. He was 67.

McIntosh also held drug seminars for pro and college athletes, meeting with almost every team in the NFL and NBA.

McIntosh spent most of his career with the FBI working with the Philadelphia division, the Daily News reported.
