Former University of Miami running back Tyrone Moss is dead at the age of 33, according to an official school announcement on Friday.
Moss played for the Hurricanes from 2003 to 2006, and was a first-team all-ACC selection in 2005.
Moss had 1,942 career rushing yards at Miami and scored 26 touchdowns.
“It’s a total shock,” Steve Davis, his former coach at Blanche Ely High School in Pompano Beach, said to the South Florida Sun Sentinel.
“He was, by far, the best player I’ve ever coached at the high school level. You had defenses and everybody that we played, all 11 guys knew he was going to get the ball. He’d still have 250 yards. You just couldn’t figure it out. My greatest moment was watching him in that state championship. He had over 200 yards. He was just incredible. He was a great football player, but he was a greater human.”
One of our brothers was taken too soon.
Our thoughts are with Tyrone Moss’ family and friends during this difficult time.
