Tyrone Moss, a key contributor for the Miami Hurricanes in the mid-2000s, has passed away. Moss was 33.
Moss died on Thursday of an "unspecified illness or medical condition" according to the Sun-Sentinel. A former star at Blanche Ely High School in Pompano Beach, Moss stayed home to play for the 'Canes from 2003-06.
Miami football confirmed his death this morning.
Moss saw extensive action all four years at Miami. As a true freshman, he rushed for 511 yards and five touchdowns, sharing carries with Jarrett Payton and Frank Gore.
Moss' best season came as a junior in 2005. That fall, he led Miami in rushing with 701 yards while scoring 12 touchdowns.
Currently, Moss ranks fifth all-time in the Miami record books with 26 rushing touchdowns. His 412 carries are 10th-best in Hurricane history, while his 1,942 yards are good for 14th-place.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Moss' family and friends, as well as the entire Miami football program.
May he rest in peace.
