    I remember him playing in the Fiesta Bowl against Connecticut...He had something like 10 tackles in that game that the Sooners won.

    Looked like an up and coming star....really a tragedy

    Box was an all-state QB and LB in high school (could have played QB at many D1 schools) who was constantly injured at OU. Without the injuries, he had first round NFL ability.

    That's very sad news.

    And is it just me, or does it seem like there are a lot of players dying over the past few months?
