Devistating news...and only 22....
.COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Columbus Crew midfielder Kirk Urso died Sunday morning at a central Ohio hospital, and no cause of death has been determined, a county coroner said. Urso, 22, was pronounced dead at 1:50 a.m. at Grant Medical Center in Columbus, Franklin County coroner Dr. Jan Gorniak said. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.
Urso played in six games this season and was sidelined by groin surgery in May. Urso was not with the team Saturday for its 1-0 loss to D.C. United in Washington, team spokesman Marco Rosa said.
The team withheld detailed comment, and the hospital said privacy laws ruled out any comment.
"The thoughts and prayers of the entire Columbus Crew and Hunt Sports Group are with the Urso family in this time of need," a team statement said
