The NCAA Sports Science Institute announced Monday a partnership with Hilinski’s Hope, the foundation set up last year in memory of Washington State quarterback Tyler Hilinski, to support the foundation’s work to improve mental health screening and awareness among student-athletes.
The announcement comes two days short of the first anniversary of the death of Hilinski, who ended his life shortly after returning to the Pullman campus for spring semester. His death stunned everyone who knew him. Hilinski had given little indication that he was struggling.
Tyler’s parents, Mark and Kym Hilinski, created the foundation shortly after his death. Hilinski’s Hope, in its first year, worked with several athletic departments, including Washington State, Idaho, Eastern Washington and Colorado.
