I was sad to learn that Todd Christensen, a former BYU and Oakland Raider, passed away from liver disease. I was lucky to meet him a few times, and I remember seeing him around town.
Christensen was a devout Mormon who didn’t drink, and family members believe his liver problems began 25 years ago after a “botched” gall bladder operation, his son told The AP.

Another BYU football player who is a closet drinker?
