NAU Football

Medical examiners say a Northern Arizona University football player died of an opioids overdose.

The Northern Arizona University community is expected to gather to remember a football player who died earlier this week.

A candlelight vigil is planned for Thursday at eight p.m. in the parking lot of the NAU Skydome to honor Malik Noshi.

A friend on Sunday discovered the 22-year-old senior offensive lineman unconscious in his Flagstaff home. Emergency responders pronounced him dead. The cause of death remains under investigation. Police say there are no signs of foul play.
