Tennessee State University's football team and community are mourning the loss of their teammate, offensive lineman Chazan Page. The 20-year-old center lost his life in a hit-and-run accident in Nashville overnight, according to Keith Sharon of the Nashville Tennessean. The Skyline Medical Center pronounced Page's passing.

Page, a 6-foot-1, 295-pound athlete, started for two seasons under head coach Eddie George at Tennessee State University.

"My thoughts and prayers are with our football student-athletes, coaches and families, and friends," TSU athletic director Mikki Allen commented in a press release.

His friend and Tigers teammate Romello Tarver posted his sentiments on social media: "Losing a teammate hurt, but losing a close friend different… waking up hearing my dawg passed got me numb to my core. Moving to Nashville was an easy transition because of this guy and his family… He made me hangout with him everyday and get out my comfort zone until it became a regular thing …. I don’t make these kinda posts when people pass away or for even my own family members… but my boy Chazan Page was truly my homie."
