Default Washington State QB Dead From Apparent Suicide
Tyler Hilinski, 21, has died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, Pullman Police confirmed in a press release Tuesday night. The death of Hilinski, a redshirt sophomore quarterback for Washington State, has been ruled a suicide.

"A rifle was recovered next to Hilinski and a suicide note was found," Pullman Police said in a release. "Detectives and the Whitman County Coroner's Office are conducting a thorough investigation to confirm the suspected cause and manner of death."

Hilinski appeared in 12 games over the last two seasons, starting the 2017 Holiday Bowl for the Cougars. He was expected to replace Luke Falk as the team's starter in 2018.

Sad to see such a young man playing a game he loves end his life for reasons we will never know. Just goes to show you anyone can be going through depression.

That is exactly what I was thinking. Thousands of high schoolers and college students would have given anything to be in his shoes, yet he wasn't happy for some reason. It goes to show you sports and stardom it's everything. Like you said, we never know what someone else is dealing with.
