Hilltopper coach Mike Sanford wrote on Twitter: "Absolutely heart-breaking to hear of Mitchell Henry’s passing. But Heaven gained a Hilltopper…one of the greatest to put on the uniform."

Athletic director Todd Stewart added in a statement, "Mitchell was as committed to his teammates, his University, his friends and his family as anyone you will ever find, and we were so fortunate to have him as part of our Hilltopper family. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, his lovely wife Madison, and all of those who were blessed to have known Mitchell."

Please join us in prayer for his friends, family, and loved ones. Thank you!
