Former Co-Lin quarterback Daniel Fitzwater dies at age 20

Former Copiah-Lincoln Community College standout quarterback Daniel Fitzwater died Saturday morning. He was 20 years old.

As quarterback for the University of Louisiana-Monroe, Fitzwater had only recently undergone surgery to repair his injured knee. His exact cause of death is not known at this time.

In our neck of the woods, Fitzwater is best remembered for leading the Wolfpack in 2013 and 2014, amassing more than 5,700 yards and 44 touchdowns through the air in that short span.

The Shreveport Times has an article on Fitzwater’s passing here.
