Oklahoma football player Austin Box died today, he was only 22 years old. According to USAToday, “The team’s starting middle linebacker, Box was unconscious when he was taken to Mercy Hospital in El Reno, Okla. He then was transferred to Mercy Hospital in Oklahoma City, where he was pronounced dead.”
Similar to the Aaron Douglas case less than a week ago no cause of death has been announced. It is incredibly sad to see this happen to young, seemingly healthy men.
Our condolences go out to his family, friends, and teammates.
