Sad news to report from the sports world.
Former TCU running back Reginald Cole was found deceased on Friday of a gunshot wound to the head, according to Tarrant County Medical Records.
No foul play was suspected in Cole’s death.
Cole walked on at TCU in 2017, redshirting as a freshman before appearing in the 2018 season opener. He would leave the program after the 2018 season.
Cole was a standout running back and safety at Dallas Carter High School, earning team MVP honors his final two seasons.
“It’s been tough,” former Dallas Carter head coach Patrick Williams told DallasNews.com. “Reggie was like a son to me. A great kid, very humble, worked hard. Was one of the top academic students, as well as football players.”
Cole also played tennis and ran track and field at Carter. He was a two-time state finalist in the 4×100 and 4×200 relays in track and field.
