Florida International University football player Luke Knox, the younger brother of Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox, has died, the school’s athletics department said Thursday. He was 22 years old.

FIU head coach Mike MacIntyre remembered Knox as a caring and committed member of the team, saying he admired Knox’s passion for the sport, but “his genuine love for his family and teammates is what I will always remember.”

“He had a special way of making everyone around him feel comfortable and confident. Luke’s family is special to me, and they will continually be in my heart and in my prayers during this difficult time,” MacIntyre said in a statement.

“Our hearts go out to Dawson and his family during this time, and we’re right there with him and supporting him and his family,” McDermott said. “Just tragic news that I woke up to this morning. We love him and we support him.”
