More than a thousand people gathered Wednesday night at the University of California, Berkeley to remember student-athlete Ted Agu.

The defensive lineman at Cal died Friday morning after collapsing during a training run with his teammates. Agu was 21.

"I can't imagine what it's like to lose a son or a brother," said Stefan McClure, Agu's teammate. "He was one of our brothers and we're just trying to be strong for each other."
