Navy football player David Forney has died after he was found unresponsive in his dorm room by a fellow teammate earlier this week. The Naval Academy said in a statement that Forney passed away on Thursday night. He was just 22.

A cause of death was not mentioned.

Forney was a three-year letterman at Navy and played in 39-straight games over the last three seasons. He started all 13 games for the Midshipmen in 2019.

“Words cannot express our pain and sorrow,” Navy head coach Ken Niumatalolo said in a statement. “First and foremost, our deepest condolences to the Forney family. The Navy Football Brotherhood is not a team, we are a family. We are devastated to have lost one of our brothers. We all loved — and will always love — David. We pray for strength during this most difficult time.”

Forney was a native of Walkersville, Maryland and would have graduated on May 22. According to the release from the Naval Academy, he had been assigned to commission as a cryptologic warfare officer.
