Former University of Notre Dame and Indianapolis Colts quarterback Blair Kiel died Sunday at age 50 after being rushed from a relative’s home to Columbus Regional Hospital. Kiel won a state football championship at Columbus East High School and was a four-year starter for Notre Dame beginning in 1980. He played in the National Football League for seven seasons, including the 1986 and 1987 seasons with the Colts. A coroner said Kiel died of natural causes, but tests are pending.
