This is so sad, Buffalo just lost another young man with a promising future! A UB football player has passed!!

Solomon Jackson had to be hospitalized after a team conditioning session last week! The sophomore from Georgia died on February 29, according to WIVB. My heart goes out to his parents, who thought they were sending their son to school to become a better athlete and get a good education! Keep his family in your thoughts and prayers!

UB's Athletic Director Allen Greene released a statement on Jackson’s passing:

“It is with deep sadness that I write to share that we have lost one of our own, UB football player Solomon Jackson, who passed away last night. Our heartfelt condolences and deepest sympathies go out to Solomon’s family as together we mourn his tragic and untimely death."
