Sad news to report this morning from the world of College Football. Mississippi State defensive end Keith Joseph Jr, along with his father, Keith Sr, both tragically died in a car crash late last night.


Keith Jr was a freshman for the bulldogs and his father was a standout for them back in the day as well and is among the all time sack leaders for the program.

The one-car accident occurred when the two men were traveling to attend a football game at Pascagoula High School, which both attended.

“We are deeply saddened and heartbroken by the tragic loss of Keith and his father,” said head coach Dan Mullen. “Keith had such a promising future as a Bulldog following in the legacy started by Keith Sr., who played for our program 25 years ago. Keith was a great teammate to all of us. With heavy hearts, our thoughts and prayers go out to the Joseph family, our entire Mississippi State community and all of the lives these Bulldogs touched.”

Our thoughts and prayers go out to them and their family.
