How Did Cody Ince Pἀss Away?
Former Iowa Hawkeye offensive lineman Cody Ince pἀssed away at the age of 23. The cause of deἀth wasn’t made known right away. Ince made the Dean’s List and was named Academic All-Big Ten in the spring semester of 2021, according to ABC station KCRG. Ince played in 29 games for Iowa between 2018 and 21 and started 10 of them.
Kirk Ferentz, the head coach of Iowa, said in a statement:
“I am incredibly sad to hear about Cody Ince’s sudden passing. Cody was a tremendous young man, valued teammate, and contributor to our program. He loved football, fishing and hunting, and believed in the importance of family and friendships. Cody was just beginning this next chapter of his life and was about to be married. Mary and I are heartbroken for his fiancée, his family and all his friends who knew and loved him. All of us in the football program – his coaches and teammates – are mourning his loss.”
The Athletic’s Scott Dochterman, who covers Iowa, wrote that Ince had a chance at having a “legitimate NFL career” before ἰnjuries caused him to give up football a year before his college eligibility expired. Tyron Tracy Jr., who began his undergraduate career at Iowa before moving to Purdue, paid tribute to Ince on his memorial page. Tracy wrote:
“I have had the honor of knowing and playing with Cody while I was at the University of Iowa.”
Injuries kept Cody Ince from a legitimate NFL career and forced him to retire a year early. He was only 23.
