A 2009 second-round drake pick of England Patriots, Ron Brace, has been pronounced dead at the age of 29.
According to MassLive, the former Patriots football player and a 2009 second-round drake pick of England, died on Saturday. The police were called to his house around 9 p.m. on Saturday, but the cause of death is still under investigation, Captain Robert Strzempek said in an interview with Massive.
The Springfield, Massachusetts star was a defensive lineman at Boston College before he continued his career with the Patriots.
“Seven years ago tomorrow, we drafted Ron after his standout career at Boston College,” according to a statement from the Patriots. “During his Patriots career, the Springfield native was always eager to volunteer and give back in our communities, especially when those community initiatives were held in Western Mass. It is difficult to believe that someone so young and in the prime of his life is no longer with us.”
According to the Patriots, Brace in 2009 joined the team where he played 39 games, starting seven for the Pats during an injury-shortened career from 2009-2012.
Our condolences to the bereaved family and wish the deceased to Rest In Peace, as investigation about his death is underway.
