NFL Philadelphia Eagles head coach, Andy Reid, has suffered a loss no parent ever wants to endure.
Reid’s son, Garrett Reid, has been found dead at Lehigh University, where the Eagles have been holding training camp. A teary-eyed General Manger, Howie Roseman, made the announcement this morning. “I have some heartbreaking news to share with you all … It’s a tough morning for all of us in the Eagles’ family,” Roseman said. “Garrett grew up with this team, and this makes this news even harder for us to process. Our hearts go out to Andy, Tammy, Britt, Spencer, Crosby and Drew Ann,” — Garrett Reid’s parents and siblings. “We ask sincerely that you respect the family’s privacy during this time … We’ve been with Andy for a long time. He’s always been strong for us, and we’re going to get strong for him right now.”
Local police discovered Reid,29, after a 911 call went out for an unresponsive male. Local police said that there was no suspicious activity but that the death is under investigation.
Garrett had been assisting the Strength and Conditioning staff during camp.
