He died at the age of 28 from Stage III Oligodendroglioma, an inoperable brain cancer. He played college football at Evangel University. In his career, Skaggs played for the Redskins, San Francisco 49ers, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the National Football League (NFL). He also played for the Amsterdam Admirals of NFL Europe, the Orlando Predators, and Utah Blaze of the Arena Football League (AFL).  Justin was a Christian man who wasn’t afraid of his faith and mentored many aspiring athletes (including Jared Stevens). He was a loving husband and father and tremendous athlete.
