The Minnesota football team is currently grieving after the loss of one of its own.
Gary Tinsley, who was a linebacker, was found dead on campus. He was 22-years-old.
He had overcome personal problems in his career and was just weeks away from receiving his degree. But that will not happen now, as he was found unresponsive in his apartment at Roy Wilkins Hall.
The cause of death is not known at this time. The authorities are awaiting autopsy results from the medical examiner.
“It’s a very, very sad day for our football program and for our young men,” an emotional coach Jerry Kill said. “We lost one of ours today in Gary Tinsley, who I know is in a good place.”
“It is always difficult to lose a member of the University family,” Minnesota President Eric Kaler said in a statement issued by the school. “Gary was close to graduating from the university’s College of Education and Human Development with a major in business and marketing education. In addition, he was an important part of Gopher athletics who was engaged in public service. Our thoughts are with Gary’s family and everyone on campus who knew him.”
