Alabama Releases Statement On The Passing Of Aaron Douglas

The University of Alabama has released a statement on the passing of offensive lineman Aaron Douglas.

Alabama athletic director Mal Moore and football coach Nick Saban both issued statements in the release.

“It is with tremendous sadness that we received the news of the passing of Aaron Douglas,” Moore said. “Our prayers and sympathies are with the Douglas family at this tragic time.”

“It is a tragedy anytime you lose someone close to you and even more so when it is a member of your family,” Saban said in the release. “Aaron was a part of our family and always will be a part of our family at Alabama. He was an outstanding young man and we were excited about what he had accomplished as a player and a person in the short time he was with us.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to his parents, David and Karla, who are two of the best people you will ever meet and the love they had for their son was something very special. As a father, there is nothing we can say to describe the loss of a son. Our Alabama family has sustained a tragic loss and the Alabama family is grieving that loss. We will be here to support Aaron’s family in any way we can.”

Alabama stated that no further details regarding the passing of Douglas are available at this time.
