Purdue quarterback Aidan O’Connell returned home with his family following last weekend’s victory at Indiana. He still hasn’t returned to campus. As the Boilermakers began preparing for their first Big Ten championship game, their starting quarterback and uncontested leader remained in Illinois with his family as they mourned the recent death of O’Connell’s oldest brother, Sean. “He played his heart out for his teammates and gave us a great effort,” coach Jeff Brohm said Monday, describing O’Connell’s performance two days earlier. “Of course, he’s got things he has to deal with this week, but we’ll be there to support him and whenever we get him back to work, we look forward to that.” O’Connell announced his brother had died in a statement posted Sunday on Twitter. The cause of death has not been revealed.
