Report: Auburn great Quentin Groves tragically passes away
The Auburn family received some sad news on Saturday as former Tiger great Quentin Groves tragically died.
Groves, 32, passed away on Saturday morning, according to 247Sports:
“Great kid,” said Joe Whitt Sr., a longtime Auburn assistant. “Just a really good person. It is hard to believe he is gone.”
Details surrounding Groves’ death are not known currently.
The ex-Tiger was diagnosed with Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome in 2008, which causes a rapid heartbeat.
Groves was a second-round pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2008 NFL Draft. He played for five teams in his eight-year NFL career.
During his time with Auburn, Groves had 24 sacks.
