POLICE are investigating the tragic death of a 20-year-old college football player who was found unresponsive in bed.
UNLV lineman Ryan Keeler died Monday at his studio apartment in Las Vegas of unknown causes, officials said.

“We are devastated to have lost a member of our Rebel family,” UNLV football head coach Barry Odom said in a statement.
