University of Maryland football player to be laid to rest today
Funeral services for 19 year old Jordan McNair will be held at New Psalmist Baptist Church in Baltimore with burial to follow at King Memorial Park.
Mcnair—a sophomore at the University of Maryland, died two weeks ago after collapsing during an organized team work out and undergoing a liver transplant at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center, according to a gofundme campaign set up to assist his family with medical costs. The cause of his death hasn’t been disclosed. The university has enlisted an outside agency to review the case to ensure proper protocols were followed.
