One of the most depressing stories of the offseason has just gotten worse as the parents of Tyler Hilinski say a study of his brain revealed signs of CTE.

If you are unfamiliar with his story, Hilinski committed suicide this offseason. He was slated to start at quarterback for Washington State and apparently showed no signs of depression or abnormal behavior prior to his suicide. After failing to report for offseason practice, the Washington State quarterback’s body was discovered at his home. Tyler was 21.

Tyler’s younger brother is Ryan Hilinski, the No. 2 pro-style QB prospect in the nation for the 2019 recruiting cycle and current South Carolina commit.

During a recent appearance on the TODAY Show, Hilinski’s parents revealed that a study of Tyler’s brain show signs of CTE, according to the Mayo Clinic. The Hilinskis made an appearance on the program to promote a recent Sports Illustrated article on Tyler as well as a documentary on the former Washington State QB, which can be viewed here.

His family has started a foundation, Hilinski’s Hope, in Tyler’s honor with “the goal of keeping Tyler’s memory alive and generating the funding necessary to support programs that will help destigmatize mental illness.” A link to the foundation can be found here.
