Davis Heller, NGU Baseball PlayerTigerville, SC (October 6, 2022) We are deeply saddened by the death of North Greenville University student-athlete Davis Heller, who died October 5 in his off-campus apartment. Although there is an ongoing investigation, initial indications are that he died of natural causes.

Davis was a junior from Gilbert, Arizona, majoring in Strategic Communication. A first baseman for NGU baseball, he was in his first semester after transferring from the University of Alabama.

“Our baseball program is heartbroken over the loss of an amazing human being and brother in Christ,” said NGU Coach Landon Powell. “Davis was a positive force everywhere he went. A gentle giant who greeted everyone with a smile and constantly uplifted those around him. An example of what a great teammate should be, Davis has left a lasting legacy on this program. A great competitor, but even better friend to those who got to know him.”

Please pray for Davis’ parents, three sisters, extended family, and friends during this time of loss.

Funeral arrangements are pending at this time.
