College football nation quickly rallied around the Georgia Tech program Sunday afternoon, as the Yellow Jackets family dealt with the unexpected passing of defensive lineman Brandon Adams.
Details of the Tennessee-native's death have been sparse, other than a Georgia Tech communications office statement, acknowledging the Atlanta Police Department's determination that Adams died of "natural causes."
After news broke, a slew of competing football programs, noted head coaches and national football pundits expressed their heartfelt sympathies to Georgia Tech athletics.
