University of Arkansas football player Garrett Uekman, a tight end, was found dead in Fayetteville this morning in his dorm room according to Catholic High head football coach David Estes.
Uekman is from Little Rock and played for Estes at Catholic High. Estes says Uekman played for the Razorbacks Saturday at War Memorial Stadium.
Estes told KATV "This is devastating to our community. Garrett was an absolute joy to be around and our hearts and prayers go out to his family and all those who knew him."
Estes says a Rosary will be held at Catholic High Monday at 3:15pm.
Right now we do not know the cause of death. We have a crew working on this story and will have the latest as it becomes available at 5pm and 10pm.
