A standout wide receiver on his high school football team, Gowdy was transported to Broward Health North after a pedestrian accident involving a train, according to the Broward County Sheriff’s office. He died at the hospital.

The Broward County Medical Examiner’s office has ruled the manner of death as suicide, listing the cause as blunt force injuries.

Gowdy finished classes at Deerfield Beach High School a semester early so he could start classes and join Georgia Tech’s football team on January 6, the school said in a statement.
“Our entire Georgia Tech football family is devastated by the news of Bryce’s passing,” Georgia Tech football head coach Geoff Collins said. “Bryce was an outstanding young man with a very bright future. He was a great friend to many, including many of our current and incoming team members.”

This is a sad development.  Given his age, I really hope this wasn’t because of a relationship gone wrong.
