We are all saddened by the death of Tyler Trent. The Carmel native left Purdue early last year to enter hospice care. He battled osteosarcoma, a rare bone cancer, since he was in high school. After camping out in front of Ross-Ade Stadium during the 2017 football season, Trent's story has become a source of inspiration worldwide.
