Topic - Austin Box
When top-ranked Oklahoma takes to the field Saturday night, it will be with heavy hearts and high expectations.
On the day before he died, Austin Box and his dad flew back to Oklahoma City from St. Louis after catching a couple of Cardinals games, ate lunch near the airport and shot the breeze. Routine father-son stuff, Craig Box remembers, then Austin had to leave to renew his driver's license and take his girlfriend to the airport. They hugged goodbye.
When Landry Jones arrived at Oklahoma, he took the No. 12 jersey simply because it was the one he'd always worn.
Oklahoma linebacker Austin Box had five prescription painkillers and an anti-anxiety drug in his system when he died, according to a preliminary toxicology report released Tuesday by the state medical examiner's office.
The friend told a dispatcher Box wasn't breathing, that Box had been taking pain pills, and later told a police officer "he believed he had overdosed."
"Honestly I don't need a patch on my helmet to remember my friend," he said. "I'm honoring him the best way I can, and there's not been a day that's gone by that I haven't thought about him."
