Officials believe former UNI running back died from a medical condition not a car accident

I am a huge fan of Northern Iowa and their football program and it hurts me to say that former UNI Panther Austin Ebertowski likely died from a medical condition that preceded a crash in Reno, Nevada on Monday.

Austin Ebertowski was only 25 years of age, and a former running back for the Panthers.

Ebertowski was the son of Lindsay and Jeremy Ebertowski and had four younger siblings: Dalton, Tayler, Jacee and Tegan.  This is such as sad day, but authorities are not saying it was the crash that caused the death.

The officials believe that Austin died of a medical condition before his car slowly rolled off the road and hit a fence.  They report the impact of the crash was not strong enough to cause a fatal injury.

Please keep his entire family in your prayers as well as the UNI family.
