Mississippi State announced Friday night that freshman defensive lineman Keith Joseph Jr. was killed in a one-car accident Friday. Joseph's father, Keith Joseph Sr., a former Mississippi State linebacker, was also killed in the accident.
“We are deeply saddened and heartbroken by the tragic loss of Keith Jr. and his father,” Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen said. “Keith had such a promising future as a Bulldog following in the legacy started by Keith Sr., who played for our program 25 years ago. Keith was a great student, a hard worker and a great teammate to all of us.

The father and son were on their way to a high school football game at Pascagoula High School, Joseph's former high school.
