Former Nicholls State running back Dalton Hillard Jr. passed away at the age of 29. Please pray for his family.

Dalton Hillard Jr was a beast at Nicholls State. In ten games in 2013, Hillard Jr. rushed for 371 yards on just 66 carries and scored 6 touchdowns. He was a standout from New Orleans, and everyone remembers his father who was a running back for the Saints.

Well, it is sad to announce that Hillard Jr. has passed away at the age of 29. The cause of death was not mentioned, but Nicholls State recently released this statement.

“The Nicholls Football program lost a member of our family, as former running back Dalton Hilliard Jr. passed away at the age of 29,” the statement said. “Our thoughts are with his family, friends, former coaches and teammates.” 

Please keep the Hillard family in your prayers.
