Marshall Football Player Dies

Morgantown, West Virginia – Jaquan Yulee, a former linebacker for Marshall University, died tragically in a car accident yesterday.

Yulee, a former four star recruit, was a beloved player at Marshall.  He played in every game as a freshman and sophomore at linebacker for the Herd, and then made his first start during his junior season.  During that start against VMI, he suffered a gruesome spine injury that ended his season in 2019 and nearly ended his career.

However, Yulee was just recently cleared by doctors after two years and was attempting to make a comeback to football before his untimely death yesterday.  Yulee posted the following message on social media just a day ago, announcing that he would be transferring to Virginia State University, Central State University or Virginia Union University to continue his football career.

News of Yulee’s death has left the entire Marshall University understandably shocked and saddened.
