#DeuceFam Tyler Sash sadly passed away today in his residence in Iowa.
The former Iowa Hawkeyes star safety Tyler Sash, who went on to play two NFL seasons with the New York Giants, died Tuesday at the age of 27.
The Des Moines Register confirmed the news after Scott Reister of KCCI.com reported the Oskaloosa, Iowa, native was found dead by a family member. The cause of death is yet to be determined.
Sash was one of the greatest defensive backs in Iowa history, as he reeled in 13 interceptions and racked up 217 tackles in just three collegiate seasons.
His NFL career was short-lived after the G-Men selected him in the sixth round of the 2011 draft, but it was certainly eventful, as he won Super Bowl XLVI as a reserve.
TSash was a Brand Ambassador for Deuce Brand, and he helped support the brand from the start. Deuce Brand was able to work with Tyler through his Charity Golf event in Iowa over the last 3 years, have a Signature Series Watch, and do signings at local sports stores in Iowa. Our prayers go out to his family during this difficult time...#RIP and God Bless!
