Ahmaad Galloway, a former University of Alabama right-back who played for the Tide from 1999 to 2002, was reportedly killed by an overdose.
According to the St. Louis County Medical Examiner’s Office, the ex-football player died at the age of 42 from a fatal mix of fentanyl, ethanol, and xylazine.
Galloway was discovered dead in his house on January 9, after failing to show up for work as an eighth-grade teacher at St. Louis’ Compton-Drew Middle School.
Susan Reid, the school’s principal, said he showed no signs of distress in the days leading up to his death and had just attended a students’ basketball game days before his death.
In the three years he played for Tide, Galloway rushed for 1,830 yards and 17 touchdowns. He went on to be picked by the Denver Broncos in the seventh round of the 2003 NFL Draft.
