Former Texas A&M basketball player David Edwards has died from coronavirus. His former Aggies teammate Charles Henderson shared the news on Facebook on Monday night.

An A&M official confirmed reports of Edwards’ death.

“Never in a million years would I have even imagined my backcourt teammate would go before his time. I just got the news that Dave Edwards passed away. For those that have been praying for him, he is now in a better place.” Henderson said on Facebook.

“This coronavirus has hit me in the heart. Dave was one of the fiercest competitors and best point guards that I’ve ever met. Nearly unstoppable. Learned a how to become tough as nails competing against him everyday and shaking off adversity. Will also remember the 4 years we were together after you transferred from Georgetown to Texas A&M. RIP Dave Boogie!!!!”

That’s tough news for his family and friends.  There’s no information on whether or not he had any underlying condition that would have made it harder for him to recover from the virus.
