A somber wave has swept over our beloved football community as we mourn the tragic loss of Jaden Hullaby, a promising young man and former football player for both Texas and New Mexico. He passed away far too young, at the tender age of 21. In a time of such sorrow, we offer our deepest condolences to his family, friends, and teammates.
Jaden, who was reported missing since Friday, was last seen in his home city of Dallas. The cold hand of death took him too soon, with no official cause announced as of yet. His sudden absence is a grim reminder of life’s unpredictability, urging us to value every day and the bonds we hold dear.
Jaden wasn’t just a young man with a love for football; he was a testament to hard work and dedication. Transitioning from quarterback and running back positions in high school to a linebacker at Texas in 2020, he showcased his versatility and adaptability, traits that we Americans take pride in. He had the heart of a warrior, appearing in two games at Texas, redshirting the 2021 season, and then moving onto New Mexico, where he took on the dual roles of a running back and tight end.
The football community has lost a star in the making. Texas coach Steve Sarkisian, struggling with this harsh reality, spoke fondly of Jaden. He commended his great personality, adding how everyone enjoyed his company, coaching, and spending time with him. New Mexico echoed these sentiments, expressing grief over the loss of their former running back/tight end.
During his stint as a Lobo, Jaden graced the field in eight games, even starting one. He caught two passes for 44 yards, alongside gaining 59 yards on 13 carries for New Mexico in his last season. As a testament to his ambitious spirit, he had entered the transfer portal following the 2022 season, always looking forward to the next step.
But let’s not remember Jaden Hullaby just for his football prowess. Let’s remember him for his spirit, his drive, and his resilience. To his family, we extend our deepest sympathies, and to Jaden, we say – you will be remembered, young man.
