“The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office is looking into an apparent drowning that took place in the Gulf of Mexico this afternoon and claimed the life of a visitor. Around 2:12 p.m., emergency personnel were summoned to the beach in Destin behind 775 Gulf Shore Drive. According to reports, a group of persons in the water close to the second sandbar had been trying to swim back to land, according to a statement from the Okaloosa County (Florida) Sheriff’s Office to USA TODAY Sports.
“One of the people, an adult man, fell under, and lifeguards claim that when he was hauled out, he was not breathing. The victim was given rapid life-saving efforts, but the Destin Emergency Room declared him dead. As of right now, we don’t have proof that the next of kin was informed. As the head football coach, Mallett just joined the White Hall (Arkansas) High School coaching staff.
“We share the death of Coach Ryan Mallett with deep sorrow. Coach Mallett was a cherished coach and educator, according to a statement from the White Hall School District. “We ask that you please remember in your prayers his family, team, students, fellow coaches, and the staff of the White Hall School District.
The Arkansas Razorbacks football team released a statement after Mallett’s passing, saying they were “shocked and saddened” by his passing and that he “was a Razorback legend with larger-than-life talent and a personality to match.” He guided our group through some of our most memorable occasions in recent years. Everyone who knew him will miss him. His mother Debbie and the rest of his family are in our thoughts and prayers.
For the New England Patriots, Houston Texans, and Baltimore Ravens, Mallett played five NFL seasons. After two outstanding seasons at Arkansas, he became a household name in college football.The New England Patriots released a statement saying they were “deeply saddened to learn of the sudden and unexpected passing of former quarterback Ryan Mallett.” “Our thoughts are with the Mallett family, his exes, and everyone who is grieving his loss,” the statement reads.
According to the Ravens, for whom Mallett appeared in six games, Mallett “had an infectious personality, and throughout his time as a Raven, Ryan’s charisma and joy for being around the team were consistently on display.”
The NFL also issued a statement in which they expressed their “deep sorrow” for Ryan Mallett’s demise. We are thinking about his family and close friends.
In 2008, Mallett switched from the University of Michigan to the Razorbacks. Tim Tebow dominated the SEC at the time he entered the league, so he had to sit out for a year owing to NCAA transfer regulations before he started to make waves.
He had consecutive seasons with at least 3600 passing yards and 30 touchdowns, leading the league in both 2009 and 2010. Mallett was selected to the All-SEC second team both seasons, finishing behind Heisman Trophy winners Tim Tebow (2009) and Cam Newton (2010). In the 2010 Heisman vote, he came in sixth place.
Mallett opted to join the 2011 NFL draft despite having one year of eligibility left. He was projected to be a first-round choice as the draft approached. However, Mallett was picked in the third round by the Patriots to serve as Tom Brady’s backup. Mallett backed up Brady for two seasons before being dealt to the Texans.
In his debut year with Houston, he started two games. Mallett passed for 211 yards and two touchdowns in his debut, but tore his pectoral muscle the following week. He started the following season as the Texans’ backup quarterback until taking over in Weeks 2 and 3, passing for 472 yards and two touchdowns. Mallett was benched after a blowout defeat in Week 4 and terminated four weeks later after missing the team’s charter aircraft to Miami.
After quarterback Joe Flacco sustained a season-ending injury, the Ravens signed Mallett in December 2015. In each of his two starts with the Ravens, he passed for a career-high amount of yards. He was Flacco’s backup for the following two seasons, and he played in his last NFL game in October 2017. Rewrite and elaborate on these paragraphs.
