Aaron Douglas: Alabama Crimson Tide Struggling to Cope With Latest Tragedy
Aaron Douglas Death Shocks Entire Alabama Program
Aaron Douglas, a football player at the University of Alabama, was found dead early Thursday morning in Florida. The 21-year-old was an all-American two years ago at the University of Tennesse before transferring to Alabama in January.
It's believed that Douglas was attending a party the night of his death. His death has certainly affected a number of people.
Here's what Alabama head coach Nick Saban had to say (via ESPN.com):
"It is a tragedy anytime you lose someone close to you and even more so when it is a member of your family," Alabama coach Nick Saban said in a statement released by the university. "Aaron was a part of our family and always will be a part of our family at Alabama."
Lane Kiffin, Douglas' coach when he was at Tennessee, also issued a statement (via ESPN.com):
"It is a tragedy. I heard the news this morning," Kiffin said. "He was a great kid with a huge heart. He will be truly missed by many."
Reportedly, Douglas was struggling with a lot of problems following his transfer from Tennessee. He didn't respond well to the criticism and harsh things that were said about him after he left the Volunteers in 2009.
The cause of death is unknown at this time.
