Oklahoma Linebacker Austin Box Found Dead

Wow, another death. In the past two weeks, we’ve already seen the death of three sports stars, the most recent being the death of Oklahoma Sooners linebacker Austin Box.

The Junior From Oklahoma Died Thursday

“Oklahoma City television station KFOR reported that Box was found unresponsive in El Reno, an Oklahoma City suburb, and was transported to a hospital in Oklahoma City, where he died” (Courtesy ESPN.com). Within his last two seasons at Oklahoma, Box started in six games. On February 15, 2010, he was arrested for peeing on bar stools. Subsequently, he was given a complaint of disorderly conduct for urinating in public. He was later released. This day is obviously sad for college fans, especially the Sooner fans and his friends/family. My condolences goes out to them. He was only 22 years old young.

  1. It sucks losing all these good young stars, unfortunately this one was probably due to drugs and not just random health occurance. Nice blog footballnutz, thanx for commenting on mine and sending me to that other one. I will make sure to subscribe to you both.
