Tampa Bay Buccaneers Player Found Dead!

2021 has not even a very good year for professional athletes. It seems that every couple days tragedy strikes a professional sports organization when we learn that either a current or former player has passed away.

Tragedy most recently struck the Tampa Bay Buccaneers when it was announced that former linebacker Altroy Bodrick was found dead from what was assumed to be a heart attack on June 25th.

While Bodrick’s time in the NFL was short, he was a standout player at Clemson University. Former teammate Chad Carson had the following to say about Bodrick:

“In losing Altroy to an early death, I lost a best friend and we all lost an incredible human being,” said former teammate Chad Carson, a fellow starter at linebacker for the Tigers. “Altroy, known to his friends as Troy, was a dedicated father, husband, family member, friend and leader, who loved life and spread his infectious smile and laugh wherever he went.

“And of course, Troy LOVED sports. He always remained loyal to his former teams – the Clemson Tigers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers – because they had believed in him. For that he was grateful.

“But Troy loved any sport just for the pure enjoyment of the strategy, the technique and the craft of it. He appreciated excellence in sports and in human beings, because excellence was what he was about at his core.”
