WT football player shot and killed in San Antonio


The West Texas A&M University Athletic Department announced the passing of current Buffs' football player Aydin Hoffman.

Hoffman, 19, was a native of San Antonio and spent the 2019 season as a redshirt. He graduated from Madison High School in 2018 where he was an all-district wide receiver and tight end while leading the Mavericks to a district championship.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Aydin Hoffman during this tragic time," said head football coach Hunter Hughes. "Aydin was a leader on and off the field and was loved and respected by his teammates."

At around 12:30 Monday morning, police were called to the Whataburger at 13900 O’Connor near Nacogdoches in San Antonio.

A white Honda being driven by Hoffman had crashed into a curb near the restaurant. When police arrived, they found three people inside the car including Hoffman who had a gunshot wound to his torso.

Hoffman was brought to the hospital in critical condition but he died from his injuries early this morning. There’s been no information released on the other two people who were in the car with him.

Police are still investigating.
