Chris Brown, a former USC football player, has passed away at age 24.
The former offensive lineman, who went undrafted in 2019 before signing with the Los Angeles Chargers, passed away on Sunday.
No cause of death was given.
“Chris Brown, a standout lineman from USC and Loyola High, died Sunday, Trojans coach Clay Helton said in a Twitter post. Brown was 24. A spokesman for USC confirmed that Brown had died, although no cause was given,” according to the Los Angeles Times.
Brown started all 14 games for the Trojans in 2017 when the team went on to win the Pac-12 championship.

“Chris meant so much to so many. Great person, player, teammate, and Trojan. God bless my friend. You are forever in our hearts.”
Our deepest condolences go out to Brown’s family and friends during this incredibly difficult and tragic time.
