LOGAN, Utah – Utah State University announced that they and the Suite family have established the Brian Suite Aggie Athlete Scholarship Fund.

The Brian Suite Aggie Athlete Scholarship is in honor of Brian Suite, who died on September 2, 2020 at age 28, following a courageous battle with soft tissue sarcoma. Soft tissue sarcoma is a very rare form of cancer.

The scholarship will be awarded annually to current student-athletes in their junior or senior years. The awardees must demonstrate leadership, respect and commitment to excellence, which are some of the qualities Suite displayed.

The Suite Family helped establish the endowment and any contributions after will continue to grow it. Wendy Suite, Brian’s mother, hopes that the endowment eventually covers the full cost of attendance for a student-athlete.

The legacy of Brian Suite continues to live on as a locker in his name is sponsored by a donor at the Jim & Carol Laub Athletics-Academics Complex.

The Makiki, Hawai’i native was diagnosed with cancer one month after losing his father to cancer, according to punahou.com.

Suite played for Utah State from 2010-14. As a freshman in 2010, Suite redshirted. He missed the following season due to injury. In 2013, Suite started all 14 games and was named All-Mountain West honorable mention. As a senior in 2014, Suite earned honorable mention once again in his final season with the Aggies.
