The University of Louisiana-Monroe announced one of its quarterbacks, 20-year-old Daniel Fitzwater, died Saturday morning.
KMSS notes Fitzwater, who played high school football in Shreveport, was named the All-City quarterback in 2012. This was his first season with ULM after spending two years at a junior college. According to NBC Sports, Fitzwater had a knee surgery that was keeping him out of the beginning of the season.
ULM's head coach released a statement saying, “The coaching staff and team are deeply saddened by the loss of a great person in Daniel. Our thoughts and prayers are with Daniel's family.”
