    Terrible news. I just watched their spring game a couple weeks ago and he looked good.

    Second that. Kind of makes you wonder if the kid had some sort of medical condition that he didn't even know about... It happens far too often.

    police report notes that Box took an unnamed "controlled dangerous substance," and that his death was likely an overdose.

    to bad he was messing with drugs, considering the future he potential had in front of him. I have experiment with 'stuff' at that age but when your "living the dream" i dont get it. R.I.P. and condolences to his family.

    Here's an update with 911 call

    OU linebacker Austin Box dies after being found unresponsive in El Reno; audio of 911 call released | Tulsa World

    This looks like an accidental overdose, much like what killed Heath Ledger

    Prescription drugs are dangerous... people take them for granted but they can kill.

    The comments from Hamilton (the walk-on player) were great words. Most players might look at a walk-on as a far lessor teammate. But what he said about Box constantly encouraging him and "not allowing him to be mediocre" was a pretty powerful statement about the type of kid Box was. Sounds like an impressive kid all around.
