Carson Tinker's Girlfriend Ashley Harrison Killed In Alabama Tornado, According To Report

A University of Alabama student identified as 22-year-old Ashley Harrison lost her life in Wednesday's swell of tornado activity across Alabama, according to a report by My FOX Alabama. Harrison was reportedly the girlfriend of Alabama Crimson Tide long snapper Carson Tinker.

Tinker himself was injured in the storm, with coach Nick Saban saying the 220-pound offensive lineman was flung 50 feet from his house. Saban didn't mention anything about the rest of Tinker's terrible situation, perhaps out of respect for the tragedy his player is facing right now.

Harrison was found Thursday morning according to the report, and is reportedly the first Alabama student to have been found deceased due to the storm.

This is the first report I've heard of an athlete losing someone to this week's disaster. Most of the state's other sports figures are likely enduring one hardship or another, but this story is as tough as it gets.
