Tragic news struck the college football world when it was announced that Georgia Tech defensive lineman Brandon Adams suddenly and shockingly had lost his life at the tender age of 21.
The school on Sunday announced Adams’ death, and although no cause was given, a quick search revealed that he suffered a Aneurysm.
Adams had been going through offseason workouts and was preparing for the start of spring practice when he started to feel ill.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation assisted in the investigation and the Medical Examiner’s office released this statement:
“Our entire Georgia Tech football family is heartbroken by the news of Brandon’s passing,” said Geoff Collins, Georgia Tech football head coach. “In the short time that I have had the privilege and honor of knowing Brandon, I admired and respected him, first and foremost as a terrific human being, but also as an outstanding teammate and leader. Jennifer and I offer our thoughts, prayers and unconditional support to his parents, Lisa and Reginald, his sister, Rian, and all of his family and friends, especially his brothers in our football program.”
The 6-foot-2, 325-pound Adams played in 33 games over three seasons with the Yellow Jackets.
His most notable year came in 2018 when he recorded 24 tackles, five tackles for losses and two forced fumbles in 13 games.
