Police: Former Iowa State football standout found dead in East Texas

JEFFERSON, TX (KLTV) -

DALLAS (AP) - A former standout football player for Iowa State has been found dead in his East Texas home.
    
Jefferson police say the body of Jason Thomas Berryman was found Wednesday with multiple gunshot wounds. Police have released few details of the investigation, but police Chief Joe C. Hall says no suspects have been identified.
    
Hall confirmed that the 28-year-old Berryman played at Iowa State. Berryman starred at defensive end as a freshman in 2003, when he was named the team's most valuable player and the Big 12's defensive newcomer of the year.
    
He last played for the Cyclones in 2005, when he was named defensive most valuable player in the Houston Bowl.
    
He later signed a two-year contract with the NFL's Cincinnati Bengals but was waived in 2007.
