Sad News for the Horned Frog family

I was sorry to hear the news this morning that former Horned Frog tight end Cody McCarty passed away last night after an apparent heart attack. I did not know Cody personally during our shared time at TCU- although I know at least a few of our loyal readers did. He had been teaching and coaching in the Mansfield ISD, and is survived by a wife and two young daughters. Our thoughts and prayers are with them as they deal with this tragedy.

Some readers may not recognize the name, but he was the first great tight end of the Patterson era, and first-team all-Conference USA in 2004.

Thoughts and prayers with his family.

I came in with Cody in 2000 and had the pleasure of spending the next 5 years with him as a teammate and a friend.

I am at a complete loss for words on such a sad day. He leaves behind a beautiful wife and two young daughters.

Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.

Thoughts and prayers. I know it's early, but is there any information on a fund for his wife and kids?

We haven't heard anything in that regard, LA, but will certainly let you know if we do.

Wow... I saw Zarnell Fitch post on FB today about losing a teammate, but didn't realize who it was.

So weird... I was going through one of my memorabilia books last night and came across his autographed 2005 Senior Bowl card.

Never like hearing about the passing of a Horned Frog... especially one so young.

He and I shared a class and completed a project together in Research Methods. Nice guy. Dedicated family man. This is shocking and tragic.
