Former Cincinnati Football Captain Korey Cunningham Dies

The Cincinnati Bearcats football program is mourning the loss of former player and team captain Korey Cunningham, who passed away earlier this week at the age of 28.

Cunningham, a native of Montevallo, Alabama, was a standout offensive lineman for the Bearcats from 2013 to 2017. He started his final two seasons and earned All-AAC Second Team honors in 2017. Cunningham’s leadership qualities were also recognized as he was named a team captain.

After a successful college career, Cunningham entered the NFL draft in 2018 and was selected by the Arizona Cardinals in the seventh round. He went on to play five seasons in the NFL with the Cardinals, New England Patriots, and the New York Giants, appearing in 31 games.

Cunningham’s academic achievements were equally impressive. He graduated from the University of Cincinnati in 2017 with a degree in health education with a concentration in exercise fitness.

The Cincinnati Athletics Department and Bearcats football program released a statement expressing their condolences: “We are heartbroken at the news of Korey Cunningham’s passing. Korey was a team captain with an incredible work ethic and an infectious personality. He will be sorely missed, and our thoughts are with his family, friends and teammates during this time.”

This is a tragic loss for the Cincinnati football community. Korey Cunningham will be remembered for his dedication, leadership, and positive impact on those around him.
