A tragedy has occurred for Notre Dame fans and family alike.
While George found his role as a running back and had a heap of success, Josh decided to take up the same position his father once played. He was also an ace for the special teams unit.
Josh was an all-around athlete. He had great success for the school's track team, as well.
Sad news. Josh Atkinson and his brother George both played at Notre Dame during the Kelly era. https://t.co/6O3RjXwTw6— Pete Sampson (@PeteSampson_) January 1, 2019
The has been no report on the cause of death. Regardless, 25 is way too young for anyone to pass away. A harrowing experience for his family and former teammates.
Notre Dame has yet to speak on the death, but they will make an announcement. Both of the Atkinson twins were important to the school.
