Sad news out late Monday night that former Notre Dame running back and speedy return-man George Atkinson, III has died at the age of 27.

The Atkinson twins played football together at Notre Dame and were members of the 2011 recruiting class. Atkinson III rushed for almost 1,000 yards and had 10 rushing touchdowns during his three seasons with the Fighting Irish.

As of right now, the cause of death is unknown. Atkinson's twin brother, Josh, died a bit less than a year ago. He had "been dealing with depression" over his brother's death as well as that of his mother in October 2018 from Crohn's disease, according to the outlet.

George Atkinson III played for the Irish from 2011-2013, rushing for 10 touchdowns and returning two kickoffs for scores, both occurring in 2011.

George said his brother felt guilty over their mom's death. He admitted he was "still struggling" in the letter. He was also institutionalized for self-harm. "That's the moment I can't describe", he wrote of losing his brother.

Atkinson left for the National Football League after his junior year, where he'd spend time with the Oakland Raiders, Cleveland Browns and Kansas City Chiefs.

Writing that he met with a psychologist and learned to open up about his feelings, George said he knew "the holidays this year won't be easy" but that he was "trying to take life one day at a time".
