Former USC offensive lineman Chris Brown has died, according to Clay Helton. He was 24.
Brown attended Loyola High School in Los Angeles and enjoyed his best season in 2017, when he was All-Pac-12 honorable mention and the USC offensive lineman of the year. He played left guard that season.
Brown is the second recent offensive lineman to die in the past year. Max Tuerk died in June, 2020, from an enlarged heart. He was 26.
Heartbroken to hear the news that we lost Chris Brown today. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Brown family. Chris meant so much to so many. Great person, player, teammate, and Trojan. God bless my friend. You are forever in our hearts.— Clay Helton (@USCCoachHelton) April 18, 2021
