Former CU football player, Chris Thrasher, dies at age 27
By Jordan Alves
CU sports information director
Campbellsville, KY - Campbellsville University is saddened to inform the football community that former student-athlete Chris Thrasher lost his life due to an apparent heart attack on Monday, Feb. 15.
The visitation is scheduled at the Talbott Funeral Home, 1106 N. Cross St, Albany, KY, on Friday, February 19 from 3-8pmET. The funeral is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 20 at 2pmET.
Chris, 27, was the son of Katherine Smith and Jeff Thrasher and was born on May 9, 1988. He came to Campbellsville pursuing a physical education degree in 2006 after graduating high school from Clinton County in Albany, Ky.
"Chris was always a joy to be around both on and off the field," said CU assistant director of athletics and former coach Jim Hardy. "His personality was contagious. Always full of laughter, I never remember ever seeing him that he did not greet you with a smile. Our prayers are with Chris's family."
Chris saw action in two games his senior season (2008) under first-year head coach Perry Thomas.
"It's sad to hear of the passing of Chris," said Thomas. "He was an outstanding young man and outstanding team member. The Fighting Tiger football family sends our prayers to his family and friends."
