There is some tragic news to report in the college football world. Last night, following the Cincinnati Bearcats 14-0 win over the Miami (OH.) Redhawks, one of the team’s players has died in a single-car accident while two of his teammates were injured.

In an accident that took place around 10:30 p.m. ET, redshirt freshman offensive lineman Ben Flick was pronounced dead at the scene. He was just 19 years old.

“I can’t put into words how tragic this is,” Head Coach Tommy Tuberville said, after learning of the accident.

“As a father and a coach, it’s something you hope you never have to go through. Ben was so proud to be a part of this team and University. He worked hard and had shown a great deal of improvement since the summer. His future was bright. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Flick family on their loss. We also hope and pray for Mark and Javon to recover from their injuries.”

Treshman wide receivers Mark Barr and Javon Harrison, who are also redshirting this season, were injured in the accident along with the driver who has not been named and flown to the UC Medical Center. Barr and the driver are reportedly in critical condition, while Harrison is being listed as stable.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of everyone that has been affected by the accident and to the entire Cincinnati football program.
