Tyler Sash Has Died
I have learned from a trusted and reliable source that former Iowa football player Tyler Sash has passed way. As of this time, I do not have specifics as to his passing. We will share those as they become available.
Tyler Sash starred for Oskaloosa High School as a multi sport athlete before committing to Iowa to play football. He as an All Big Ten player and a sixth round selection with the New York Giants. Sash made the team and played in a Super Bowl and was a member of an NFL Champion.
Sash was 27. May he rest in peace.
Just confirmed terrible news Tyler Sash has passed. Found at home 8 this morning by family member who came to walk dog. Can't confirm cause

We fought in many great battles together. Side by side. Don't wish that upon anyone or any family. Beyond words. Always a Hawk. Rest easy
