Purdue superfan Tyler Trent passes away at 20

Jints in Carolina : 1/1/2019 10:30 pm
Tyler Trent, the former Purdue student who inspired countless sports fans with his gratitude and grace, died of a rare form of bone cancer on Tuesday. He was 20 years old.

Trent first earned the admiration of the Boilermakers football team by camping outside the stadium last September prior to the team's Big Ten home opener against No. 8 Michigan. He posed for a picture with head coach Jeff Brohm the morning of the game. Trent did not initially tell Brohm that he had spent the previous afternoon at a chemotherapy session to treat osteosarcoma.

courageous, humble, his story should be everywhere, the perspective, strength and fearlessness he displayed while handed a death sentence is nothing short of heroic in my opinion.

RIP Tyler
