Former HS Football Star, Who Beat Out Joe Burrow For Top Award, Shot & Killed

Kane Rouse, a former West Virginia high school football star, was shot and killed over the weekend in Ohio. He was just 25 years old.

Roush was a star for the Wahama High School White Falcons and led the school to a Class A state championship back in 2012.

The standout running back won the “Gridiron Glory” Player of the Year award in 2013 for his stellar efforts on the field, beating out future Heisman Trophy winner and first-round pick Joe Burrow for the honor.

Roush was found shot multiple times in his back on Easter Sunday after what police believe to have been an argument, according to TMZ Sports.

After crawling to a neighbor’s house to ask for help, cops arrived on the scene and Roush was taken to the local hospital where he ultimately passed away.

Roush’s killer is still on the loose and police are investigating the situation.

During his senior year, Roush recorded over 1,600 rushing yards, 720 receiving yards, and 48 total touchdowns.

Roush was one of the top running backs in West Virginia and went on to play for the Division II University of Charleston Golden Eagles in West Virginia.

Our deepest condolences go out to Roush’s family and friends during this incredibly difficult and tragic time.
