Former Arkansas lineman Brian Wallace passed away Friday due to complications from two heart attacks that he suffered earlier in the week. He was 26 years old.

Wallace passed away while in intensive care in St. Louis. In a report by Pig Trail Nation, Wallace’s father, Brian Sr., said that his son had trouble breathing while at work on Monday. Following a break, he returned to work but collapsed from a heart attack. He then had another heart attack that left him in a coma with difficulty breathing.

Arkansas Football released their heartfelt message to Twitter on Friday.

“Our hearts are broken. Brian will always be a Razorback. Our thoughts and love are with Brian’s family and friends.”

Wallace, originally from Florissant, Mo., was a member of the Razorbacks football program from 2014 until 2018. While at Arkansas, Wallace participated in 35 games, starting in 29 of those games at right tackle.
