Ouachita Baptist University in Arkansas announced the passing of senior defensive lineman Clark Yarbrough, 21, who collapsed Sunday morning.

The cause of Yarbrough’s death is unknown.

The 6-foot-1, 280-pound Yarbrough was an All-Great American Conference honorable mention selection in 2021 after playing in all 11 games and finishing the season with 27 tackles. 

The Ouachita Baptist Tigers — a Division II football program — won their season opener, 42-32, over Oklahoma Baptist on Thursday. Yarbrough recorded two tackles in the victory. It was the 15th consecutive season opener won by Ouachita Baptist, and its eighth straight win over Oklahoma Baptist.

Yarbrough, whose hometown is Rowlett, Texas, played at Sachse (Texas) High School before attending Ouachita Baptist.
