Sports world mourns Washington State QB Tyler Hilinski

Washington State quarterback Tyler Hilinski has died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, the Pullman Police Department announced in a news release Tuesday evening.

Roy Manning, Former Washington State linebackers coach tweeted, "Words can't describe what I'm feeling right now".

Police interviewed friends of Washington State quarterback Tyler Hilinski on Wednesday to try to better understand why he killed himself.

Hilinski was WSU's backup quarterback in 2017 and got his first career start in the Holiday Bowl just three weeks ago.

Hilinski appeared in eight games during his sophomore season, throwing for 1,176 yards and seven touchdowns. Bledsoe's son, John, was one of Hilinski's teammates.




"The tragic news today surrounding Tyler Hilinksi is devastating to all".

Hilinski's teammates and the college football community offered their condolences to the Hilinski family via Twitter.

The public vigil will begin at 7 p.m.in front of the Cougar Pride statue outside of Martin Stadium on Washington State's campus. Hilinski struggled in his first start, leading his team to four punts in WSU's first five possessions. He had not shown up for football practice earlier in the day.

In the release, Johnson said the team was gathered and informed of the news, and counseling and mental health services have been provided to the players. "The university will continue to coordinate and provide ongoing counseling care for all student-athletes as long as needed". Those who have suicidal thoughts must know that there are people out there who love them and are willing to help them in times of despair.

Hilinski is from Claremont, Calif, and went to high school at nearby Upland.
