Former Texas A&M Guard David Edwards Dies From Coronavirus

On Monday, a university official confirmed that former Texas A&M Guard David Edwards had died  due to the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Edwards’s former Aggies’ teammate Charles Henderson posted about the guard’s passing on social media early Monday.

“Never in a million years would I have even imagined my backcourt teammate would go before his time. I just got the news that Dave Edwards passed away. For those that have been praying for him, he is now in a better place,” Henderson wrote on Facebook. “This coronavirus has hit me in the heart. Dave was one of the fiercest competitors and best point guards that I’ve ever met. Nearly unstoppable. Learned how to become tough as nails competing against him every day and shaking off adversity.”

Despite all his success at Texas A&M, Edwards’ only taste of the NCAA tournament came in 1989-90, when he reached the second round as a member of the Hoyas. Edwards played for the Aggies after transferring from Georgetown before the 1991-1992 season. In 85 games for the Aggies, he averaged 13.5 points, 7.1 assists, and 4.9 rebounds. As a senior, he led the Southwest Conference with 8.8 assists per game, and his 265 assists that season remains a Texas A&M school record. The New Yorker became a three-time all-Southwestern Conference player and is one of six players in Division I history to record a triple-double in consecutive games, doing so on March 5, 1994, and March 10, 1994.

Edwards is the second known former player from a major college basketball program to die as a result of COVID-19. Former St. John’s guard Lee Green has also died from the coronavirus. As of Monday, over 14,500 people worldwide had died from COVID-19, including 402 in the United States.
