Luke Knox Biography

Who is Luke Knox?

Luke Knox, a junior linebacker at Florida International University and the younger brother of Buffalo Bills star Dawson Knox, died at the age of 22.

The FIU announced Thursday the sudden death of the young player; however, the cause of death was not disclosed.

Florida International University linebacker Luke Knox has died at the age of 22.

Luke Knox moves to FIU ahead of the 2022 college football season.

“We are saddened by the sudden passing of FIU football program member Luke Knox,” the university wrote.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to Luke’s family, friends and teammates during this difficult time.”

Bills head coach Sean McDermott also confirmed the young star’s passing to reporters at training camp.


“Our thoughts are with Dawson and his family during this time. Our thoughts are with him and our support for him and his family, and this is just the sad news that I woke up this morning,” McDermott said.

Just weeks before his death, Knox shared a series of photos from his trip to Miami with his FIU teammates and loved ones.

“Live in Miami and play a small ball?! Yes, we’ll take it,” the young stallion wrote.

“Thank you Lord, bless me. You always know what’s best! First month in Miami. (Speaks fluent Spanish now).”

The films include Knox’s fishing adventures on a Florida lake and several photos of him and his teammates enjoying Miami nightlife. Knox, originally from Brentwood, Tennessee, transferred to FIU ahead of the 2022 college football season after spending his first four collegiate seasons at the University of Mississippi.

FIU head coach Mike McIntyre, who served as Olemis’ defensive coordinator at the Knox, said in a statement Wednesday that he was heartbroken by the young star’s death.

“Luke’s family is very special to me, and they will always be in my heart and prayers during this difficult time,” McIntyre said.

“On behalf of the entire FIU football family, I extend my deepest condolences to Luke’s family and all those who loved him.”


Ole Miss football has yet to issue a statement.

Like Knox, his older brother Dawson played for Miss Ole from 2016 to 2018 before becoming the Bills’ star tight end.

The two played together for a season at Ole Miss before Dawson decided to forgo his senior year and declared for the 2019 NFL Draft.

Dawson has yet to make a statement on the tragedy.
