The University at Buffalo says track and field senior Brian Archie has died after being found by police in his apartment.


Remembering the many athletes sports lost way too soon.

Campus police on Monday said they do not suspect foul play after Archie was found unresponsive late Sunday. A cause of death has not been released.

Archie, who turned 22 on Thursday, was a track and field athlete and graduate of Niagara Falls High. With the UB Bulls, he was named to the indoor and outdoor academic All-Mid-American Conference teams last year. He placed sixth in the long jump at the MAC indoor championships and ninth outdoors.

Athletic director Danny White issued a statement saying the school is deeply saddened by Archie's death.
