Lindenwood Player Dead
Colleges - Men's DI College


Michael Black, a High School All American and freshman on the Lindenwood University rugby team, has died at the age of 19.

A St. Louis Post-Dispatch report says St. Charles, Mo. police are investigating the death of a Lindenwood student who apparently fell to his death from his residence hall early Wednesday morning. The story does not name Black specifically, but RUGBYMag has confirmed that Michael Black has indeed died, and is, like the student in the Post-Dispatch story, a freshman from Colorado Springs.

Black followed his older brother, Tyler, a Junior All American, to the Lindenwood rugby program. Both were standouts for their Colorado Springs high school teams.
