GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - A captain of the University of North Dakota’s 2001 national championship football team has died from injuries he suffered in a motorcycle crash in Thailand, where he was teaching.

UND announced the death of former linebacker Travis O’Neel on Tuesday.

O’Neel was from Eden Prairie, Minnesota. He played for UND from 1997 through 2001 and was a member of the school’s NCAA Division II national championship team his senior season. He led the team in tackles that season and was named an All-American.
