Furman University defensive tackle Bryce Stanfield tragically collapsed on the field and later passed away after being placed on life support.

Furman coach Clay Hendrix expressed deep sorrow over Stanfield’s sudden passing and emphasized the impact of the loss on the entire community.

Hendrix said, “We are heartbroken beyond measure with Bryce’s sudden passing and ask that everyone, first and foremost, lift up his parents, Fred and Teri Stanfield, and their family, in prayer on this day and in the days ahead.”

“There are so many more who are really hurting — namely Bryce’s teammates, coaches and staff, classmates, friends, and the entire Furman community and beyond. Bryce was an outstanding young man and an equally fine student, football player, and friend,” continued the coach.

“He was so much a part of who we are as a program and school, and was pivotal in our success on the football field and through giving of his time in outreach to our community,” added Hendrix.

“In every sense he was the best representative we could have. His passing is one of the most difficult things Furman football has ever encountered, but our faith and so many wonderful memories Bryce provided us will help sustain us all in the days ahead,” he concluded.

Described as an outstanding young man and student, Stanfield’s death profoundly affected the football program and the university.

In recognition of his academic achievements, Furman President Dr. Elizabeth Davis posthumously conferred Stanfield with a Bachelor of Science degree in health sciences.
