FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — Northern Arizona University officials say a football player has died.

The school's athletics department said in a statement Monday that senior offensive lineman Malik Noshi was found dead Sunday morning in his Flagstaff home.

University spokesman Randy Press said no other comments would be made out of respect for Noshi's family.

He says Flagstaff police are investigating the cause of death.

Noshi, who is from Las Vegas, began as a redshirt for the Lumberjacks in 2015. He started two games in 2016 and went on to be a starter in all 12 games in the 2017 season.

Last year, he started nine games and earned an honorable mention from the Big Sky Conference.

He is survived by his parents and a younger sister and brother.
