Mississippi State DE Nick Bell passes away
Mississippi State defensive end Nick Bell lost his battle with cancer on Tuesday. He was 20 years old.
Bell, who played in four games this season for the Bulldogs, began experiencing headaches in late September and had surgery on Oct. 1 to remove a mass on his brain. The mass was later diagnosed as a form of skin cancer.
He was in intensive care after emergency surgery on Monday in Birmingham, Ala., after it was discovered that his cancer had spread.
The National Football Post sends its sincerest condolences to Bell’s family and friends.
