Hog football player dies — cause not known UPDATE

Posted By on Sun, Nov 20, 2011 at 4:20 PM


Multiple reports coming in of the death of Garrett Uekman of Little Rock, a tight end of the University of Arkansas Razorbacks football team. He was found unresponsive in his dorm room today. He was pronounced dead later at hospital. The cause isn't known.

UPDATE: The UA release on the death.

He was a sophomore who redshirted his freshman year and graduate of Catholic High School. He played in yesterday's game against Mississippi State. Brian Chilson took the photo above — Uekman is No. 88 — with the team at War Memorial Stadium.
