Clinkscale was a linebacker for the Golden Hurricane. 

Statement from Tulsa Head Football Coach Bill Blankenship:
"On Tuesday we suffered another tragic loss in the Tulsa football family with the death of Anthony Germany. Our thoughts and prayers are with Anthony's family and his teammates during this terrible time. After the loss of Wilson (Holloway), George (Clinkscale) and now Anthony within the last eight months, we realize how life is so fragile.

These were three young men in their 20s with bright futures ahead of them, and their lives taken so suddenly. It is heartbreaking."
