Former McDonogh lacrosse player Will Hauver died Monday in Winter Park, Florida, where he was attending college.

According to Rollins College, the 22-year-old was set to begin his senior season with the school’s lacrosse team. A cause of death has yet to be determined.

A Towson native, Hauver graduated from the McDonogh School after playing on the lacrosse team for all four years at the school. He played in 46 games during his college career, and was set to serve as a team captain for his final campaign, which was set to begin Thursday.

Hauver’s current coach will remember him for more than his performance on the field.

“Will Hauver was a charismatic, witty, and artistic young man. He had many talents on and off the field that are irreplaceable,” Rollins men’s lacrosse coach RJ Rossi said. “His leadership and friendship will be missed.”

Hauver’s death is the second to rock the local lacrosse community as players are preparing for the 2015 season. Last week, Johns Hopkins lacrosse player Jeremy Huber was found dead in a campus dorm room. Authorities have yet to release an official cause of death in that case.
