“We are all incredibly saddened and shocked by Abraham’s passing. Our hearts are broken. He always represented Dixie State University and our football program exceptionally well, but more importantly, he was an amazing young man,” said Dr. Jason Boothe, DSU Athletic Director. “He’s leaving behind a team of equally amazing young men who are struggling with this news as well. We will do everything we can to support Abraham’s family and the team during this very difficult time.”

This past season, he was named first-team All-Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference. He had a team-best 79 tackles, including a team-best 13.5 tackles for a loss.

He also had 3.5 sacks, three interceptions, including a 66-yard interception return for a touchdown against Adams State on Nov. 10, and one fumble recovery.

“Trailblazer Nation is deeply grieved by the loss Abraham, and our hearts go out to the Reinhardt family, his team, coaches, and friends,” said Richard B. Williams, DSU President. “We invite all DSU students, student-athletes, faculty and staff who have been impacted by this tragedy to utilize the counseling services and other resources available through our Health & Counseling Center.”​
