LOGAN, Utah – Kyle Gallagher, who played linebacker for Utah State from 2007-11, died last week as a result of a car crash. He was 33.

Gallagher appeared in 49 games for the Aggies, recording 291 total tackles – 133 of the solo variety. During his junior and senior campaigns in 2010 and 2011, Gallagher finished second only to Bobby Wagner, who has been named All-Pro nine times throughout his illustrious NFL career, in total tackles with 91 and 100, respectively.

The native of Woodland, California, helped Utah State end a 14-year bowl drought as the Aggies played Ohio in the 2011 Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. Gallagher finished with a team-high nine tackles, including 0.5 tackles for loss, against the Bobcats.

Gallagher and the Aggies recorded seven wins in 2011, marking the first time since 1979 that Utah State had finished a regular season with that many victories.
