“Max loved his teammates, coaches, and schools,” USC said in a statement. “Max was a loving son and older brother and his passing leaves a giant hole in their hearts. His strength and work ethic is an inspiration to many.”

Tuerk played for the Chargers organization in 2016 as they were the San Diego Chargers. The following season, he played for the team as the Los Angeles Chargers.

He also spent time with the Arizona Cardinals in 2017.

The Tracuba Canyon, California native was a third-round pick by the Chargers in the 2016 NFL Draft. He was the 66th overall pick.

During the 2017 season, he was suspended the first four games of the season due to violating the league’s performance-enhancing policy. Following his reinstatement, the Chargers released him.

Nearly a month after his release, he signed with the Chargers practice squad on October 26, 2017. Then on November 6, 2017, he signed with the Cardinals off of the Chargers practice squad.

He made his lone NFL appearance on December 24, 2017 when he played in a 23-0 win over the New York Giants.

In April 2018, he was released by the Cardinals.
