Our hearts are heavy but he is at peace now.”
Starks didn’t specify how his father handed away.

He holds a college file for profession tackles by a defensive lineman, tackles-for-loss in a single season, profession fumbles recoveries, and profession tackles-for-loss.
“I would like to extend my condolences to Ross Browner’s family, his teammates and those whose lives he impacted,” mentioned present Notre Dame Football head coach Marcus Freeman. “He set the standard for being a Notre Dame Man.”
Browner performed 9 seasons with the Bengals and his final with the Green Bay Packers after being the eighth total choose within the 1978 NFL Draft.
