Former Austin Peay standout football player Nigel Brannon shot and killed
Nigel Brannon was one of the highest recruits in Memphis football history. He was a star football player that would transfer to Austin Peay State to finish out his football career. Well, this week Brannon was shot and killed.
According to reports, Brannon was shot and killed at an apartment complex, in Oklahoma City. Police responded to a shooting Monday and found a 21-year-old man dead at the scene. The victim was later identified as Brannon.
You probably remember Nigel Brannon from last year, who held his teammate hostage with a knife. Brannon was suspended from the team after being arrested and charged with aggravated assault and aggravated kidnapping. According to the affidavit, Brannon was accused of holding a teammate against his will and threatening him with a knife.
The player was assaulted and cut on the throat requiring stitches and cut deeply on his wrist according to the report.
Please pray for the 6’5, 333 pound defensive lineman’s family and friends. This is such a sad story.
