Just entirely too young for this man to be gone.
On Tuesday, tragic news hit social media when it was reported that former Hawaii and NFL QB Colt Brennan had passed away.
No details have been released on the cause of his death.
After being taken in the sixth round of the of the 2008 NFL Draft, the former Hawaii star flamed out of the league due to injuries sustained from his time in football and suffered in a serious car crash in 2010.
Brennan spoke about the accident, in which he was a passenger, in an episode on a docu-series titled “4th and Loud.”
“All I know is I woke up, six, seven days later. I badly broke my collarbone, and on the X-rays it was just like crack, crack, crack, crack, crack, crack all the way down my left side. I woke up and I was — and I still am — a different person. I suffered minor TBI — traumatic brain injury. I just have a small scar, you know, on my brain, but it’s in an area that makes you impulsive and emotional. I’ve had to learn how to control that.”
Brennan finished his college career with 14,193 passing yards and was responsible for 146 touchdowns, ranking second all-time at the NCAA level.
Washington drafted Brennan in the sixth round, with the 186th overall pick of the 2008 NFL Draft.
