Alcorn State, MS—The Alcorn State family has suffered a tragic loss in the death of former quarterback Steve “Air II” McNair.
His collegiate career was one that exemplified the heart and spirit of an Alcornite. In his thirteen-year NFL career, he proved to be a professional and a great leader on the field as well as a contributor to the community off of the field.
While his on-the-field exploits will always be remembered, his passion for the game and life will never be forgotten. Our thoughts and prayers are with the McNair family at this time.
