University spokeswoman Julia Letlow said in a news release that university officials don't know the cause or circumstances of Daniel Fitzwater's death.

MONROE, La. (AP) — The University of Louisiana at Monroe says a 20-year-old kinesiology major and member of the football team has died.

University spokeswoman Julia Letlow said in a news release that university officials don't know the cause or circumstances of Daniel Fitzwater's death. He was from Shreveport.

Football coach Todd Berry describes Fitzwater as a great person.

The News-Star (http://tnsne.ws/1FNOpfO ) reports that Fitzwater was a backup quarterback for ULM.

He walked on at ULM this spring from Copiah-Lincoln Community College in Wesson, Mississippi. He never saw the field for the Warhawks after a knee injury in fall camp required surgery and sidelined him for the season.
