Cornelius Corprew Death: Edward Waters College wide recipients mentor Cornelius Corprew passed on Saturday, the school reported Saturday evening. He was 46.
The reason for death was not uncovered.
“We are profoundly disheartened by the death of Coach Corprew,” said Edward Waters athletic chief Paul Bryant in an announcement. “He had a prompt effect on our understudy competitors and our specialization. Our considerations and supplications are with his better half and his family during this most troublesome time.”
Corprew, a previous partner at Tulane and NCAA Division II programs including Livingstone and Shaw, was entering his first year on the staff of Tigers head football trainer Greg Ruffin. He had recently served on the training staff at Ribault High School, and had for quite a long time attempted to organize camps for initiates.
For the EWC training staff, the news denotes the second misfortune in year and a half. Hostile line mentor Glen Chapman, a veteran mentor at schools over the Jacksonville zone, passed on in March 2019 at age 41.
