HONOLULU (KHON2) — Hawaii football legend Colt Brennan has died at the age of 37.
The University of Hawaii football team’s social media account acknowledged his death on Tuesday morning. A cause of death has not been announced.
Brennan was the first player in Hawaii football history to become a Heisman Trophy finalist, finishing third in the voting in 2007.
Brennan shattered numerous passing records during his time under center in the mid 2000’s. In 2006 he set the national single-season touchdown record with 58, later to be surpassed by Joe Burrow in 2019.
According to Sports Reference, he still holds the record for most 400-yard passing games in a career with 20. Brennan never appeared in an NFL game despite being drafted by Washington in 2008.
