Former Central Catholic and California University of Pennsylvania lineman Jamain Stephens has died at the age of 21, the school announced on Tuesday.
Stephens was the son of former Pittsburgh Steelers first round draft pick and offensive tackle Jamain Stephens. His cause of death has not been released and inquiry to the Allegheny County medical examiner’s office had not been returned as of press time.
Stephens was entering his senior year at Cal and was planning to graduate with a degree in business administration.
“Jamain was such a wonderful student with a smile on his face every time you saw him,” Cal U. athletic director Dr. Karen Hjerpe said in a press release. “His personality was contagious and he made such a positive impact on everyone he met.”
Stephens appeared in 32 games over three seasons as a reserve lineman for the Vulcans. In high school, he won back-to-back WPIAL championships with Central Catholic in 2015 and 2016.
Memorial arrangements have not yet been made public.
