  • New Mexico announced the death of the 21-year-old defensive tackle Tuesday
  • Neither the cause of death or his location at the time have been revealed
  • An Albuquerque Police spokesman said there are no signs of foul play 
  • The 6-foot-3, 278-pound Flowers was due in court Tuesday on a misdemeanor property damage charge for allegedly scratching someone's car with his keys

  • The Air Force athletic director said his team is 'disadvantaged' by the postponement, but that 'pales in comparison to [New Mexico's loss]'

 

Saturday's scheduled football game between Air Force and host New Mexico has been postponed two weeks due to the death of Lobos junior defensive tackle Nahje Flowers.

New Mexico announced the death of the 21-year-old Flowers on Tuesday. No cause of death was revealed and foul play is not suspected. 

'We are investigating, but there are no signs of foul play or criminal activity, Gilbert Gallegos, an Albuquerque Police Department spokesman, told the Albuquerque Journal.  

Gallegos told the newspaper that he didn't know where Flowers died.  

Flowers was due in court on Tuesday, the day of his death, on a misdemeanor property damage charge for allegedly scratching someone's car with his keys. The case has since been dismissed. 

There is currently no established connection between the misdemeanor charge and Flowers's death....
