Former Arkansas Offensive Lineman Brian Wallace Passes Away at 26 Following Multiple Heart Attacks


Former Arkansas Razorback offensive lineman Brian Wallace died Friday at 26-years-old.

Arkansas announced his passing Friday afternoon.

Wallace’s father Brian Wallace Sr. told Pig Trail Nation earlier in the week that his son had suffered a heart attack after having trouble breathing at work on Monday.

Wallace is in the Intensive Care Unit of a St. Louis hospital following two heart attacks he had on Monday. He is in a coma and has very little brain function at this time according to his father, Brian Sr., who also said he isn’t breathing on his own.

Wallace, 26, was having issues breathing on Monday while at work. He went outside to sit in his car and try to see if he could get to feeling better. Wallace then went back into work and collapsed with a heart attack. The medical personnel worked hard to get him to breathing again.

They finally did, but when he got to hospital he suffered yet another heart attack. It left him in a coma and not able to breathe on his own with apparent brain damage. He did move his arm and leg on Tuesday thus giving his family and friends some hope.

No official cause of death was given.

Bleacher Report noted Wallace’s football career:

After growing up in St. Louis and going to Christian Brothers College High School in the city, Wallace committed to the University of Arkansas in 2014. He played three games in his first two seasons before becoming a full-time starter as a redshirt sophomore.

Wallace appeared in 38 games for the Razorbacks from 2014 to 2018. He was a preseason All-SEC third-team selection prior to his senior year in 2018.

The Denver Broncos signed Wallace as an undrafted free agent in 2019. He joined the Washington Football Team after Denver released him at the conclusion of rookie minicamp.

After being waived by Washington with a non-football injury, Wallace signed with the Seattle Seahawks. He didn’t appear in a game for the Seahawks.
