Kevione Faulk, the daughter of former New England Patriots running back Kevin Faulk, has died, Louisiana State University announced on Monday.

The 19-year-old was a student worker for the football staff at LSU, where her family has deep ties. Kevin Faulk is the team's all-time rushing leader and was an All-SEC player for three of his four years at the school.

"We are heartbroken with the passing of Kevione Faulk, and our thoughts and prayers are with the Faulk family," a statement from LSU reads. "She was a part of the LSU family, and we mourn the loss of a daughter, a sister, a friend, a classmate and a colleague."

"We ask that all Tigers keep the Faulks in their prayers and respect their privacy at this difficult time," they added.

A cause of death for Kevione has not been released by the school.

In 2018, Kevin joined LSU as a director of player development and was then promoted to running backs coach last year.
