Rugby Player Dies Suddenly at Age 18: Brillant Young Man with ‘Infectious Attitude’

From IJR.com

An 18-year-old rugby player passed away unexpectedly in England this week.

Logan Holgate died suddenly on Wednesday, the Manchester Evening News reported.

The cause of death has not been announced, according to Breitbart.

“It appeared that Logan was on track for greater things, being set this year to ascend to the reserve team of the Salford Red Devils, a move that would have significantly raised his standing in the sport,” Breitbart reported.

Rugby-League.com said Holgate was a valued player who made a name for himself on an English squad that “created history in Italy last September.”

In that tournament, Holgate “[impressed] team mates and staff alike with his work ethic, infectious attitude and quick humour.

“He then played superbly in the Semi Final and again in the Final as [England] swept aside Wales before defeating France to win the Under 19 European Championships for the first time in dramatic and emotional scenes.

“He leaves a lasting legacy on the programme and staff – a brilliant young man and team mate.”

A rugby organization in Hensignham said, “It is with great sadness that we have to announce the passing of one our lads, Logan Holgate today,” the Evening News reported.

“Logan has been with the club since he was young. … We are all devastated at the news and will continue to support the family as much as we can. RIP Logan.”

Prayers for his friends and family. How many times to we have to see this before something is done?!

MARANATHA!
