The Williamson County school and sporting community and beyond is sharing heavy hearts and words of encouragement following the sudden passing of a Brentwood High School student and athlete.

Junior football player Lucas Davis, 16, was found deceased early Sunday.

No cause of death is known at the time, though Brentwood Police is currently investigating the incident. No criminal charges have been filed so far.

Brentwood High students and families were notified of his passing through a message from school principal Kevin Keidel later in the day. The school has since shared messages of support from others in the community.

A GoFundMe page has been established to assist the Davis family in its time of need.

“Lucas was a friend to all and a leader to all. He loved everyone to the fullest and always strived to follow Christ, while teaching others about him as well,” the page reads. “Lucas was an outstanding football player for the Bruins, as he wore #74. This tragedy has saddened Lucas’ classmates, teammates, and friends.

“Please consider donating to this GoFundMe to help raise money for Lucas’ family to assist in covering any expenses they may face. Lucas, we love you forever buddy- watch out for us up there. #FlyHigh74”

Many were quick to share condolences and remembrance for Davis after the news was shared.

Arrangements are not known at this time.

As the last message notes, Monday’s Brentwood freshman/junior varsity football game with Stewarts Creek has been cancelled in wake of the news.
