Promising Arkansas football player died at 19

Promising Arkansas tight end Garrett Uekman died after being taken to a hospital on Sunday having suffered cardiac arrest, according to University police Lt. Mat Mills. The Razorbacks’ players was shocked when they was told of Uekman’s death. “Garrett was any parent or coach’s dream,” Little Rock Catholic’s coach David Estes said. “He was one of those special kids and had a passion for everything.” It’s so sad that the talented young footballer left his team on a day that should have been all about celebration, a day when the Razorbacks saw their highest ranking in the BCS ever.
