Tragic story. Thoughts and prayers with the family.
Former NFL tight end and promising NFL player Mitchell Henry died Friday of complications from acute myeloid leukemia. He was 24
"It is with great sadness that we learned of Mitchell's passing this morning," Western Kentucky athletic director Todd Stewart said in a statement. "Mitchell was as committed to his teammates, his University, his friends and his family as anyone you will ever find, and we were so fortunate to have him as part of our Hilltopper family. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, his lovely wife Madison, and all of those who were blessed to have known Mitchell."
Henry was signed by the Green Bay Packers as an undrafted free agent in 2015. He also played for the Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens.
