Maryland OL Jordan McNair dies
« on: June 14, 2018, 10:05:25 AM »
Maryland offensive lineman Jordan McNair died Wednesday.

The redshirt freshman was hospitalized after a team workout on May 29. Maryland announced he was in the hospital on June 4.

“Our team is heartbroken with the loss of Jordan McNair,” Maryland coach D.J. Durkin said in a statement. “Jordan was an incredible young man, and his passion and enthusiasm made him an invaluable and beloved member of our team. Jordan was a hard worker and he always had a smile on his face. He was an extremely talented football player and a humble and genuine human being. He embodied the essence of what it means to be a teammate. Jordan was a fighter. Over the past few weeks, Jordan never gave up with his family, friends and team by his side. Our team will continue to be inspired by the spirit of this brave fighter. Please continue to pray for Jordan’s family during this difficult time.”

Always the saddest part of each season is losing players that "shouldn't" be lost.  RIP Jordan.
