“We are devastated to hear of the passing of Lorenzo Washington,” Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban said in a statement on Twitter. “Our thoughts and prayers are with Zo’s family, friends, and teammates. He was an integral part of our 2009 National Championship team. A wonderful son, father, friend, and a loved teammate.”

Washington played three seasons on the field with the Crimson Tide. He played in 40 games under former head coach Mike Shula and Saban.

When Washington played under Shula, he was a nose tackle for the team. Saban then converted him to a defensive end.
