Air Force Offensive Lineman Hunter Brown Died at Age 21

Hunter Brown, a 21-year-old Air Force offensive lineman, has died. The school said that Brown had a “medical emergency” on his way to class on Monday, but they didn’t say what it was. First responders tried to save his life, but they couldn’t.

“Our players, staff and entire Academy have been so blessed and fortunate to have Hunter as a part of our lives. He was a pure joy to coach and have as a teammate,” head football coach Troy Calhoun said in a statement.

“He was tough, a great worker, and no one unselfishly pulled harder for others than Hunter. His mom and dad, Candyce and Dustin, raised a wonderful son who made each of us a better person. We love our great brother, and our thoughts and prayers are with Hunter’s incredible soul and his family.”

Brown, who was from Lake Charles, La., was a sophomore. He was a management major with a French minor. This season, he played for the Falcons when they beat Nevada on September 23.

The head of the U.S. Air Force Academy, Lt. Gen. Richard M. Clark, said in a statement that Hunter was a great offensive lineman for the Falcon football team and was well-liked by his squadron.
