The college football world woke up to heartbreaking news after the death of another athlete.
Spencer Webb, a tight end on the Oregon football team, died in a tragic accident, according to a report from the Sacramento Bee.
Webb was reportedly cliff diving near the Ducks’ campus when he hit his head.
Via the report:
“Webb died on Wednesday afternoon, hitting his head during a cliff-diving accident just west of Triangle Lake in Lane County, less than a mile from Eugene, where the university is located.
The Lane County Sheriff’s Office on Thursday evening posted on its Facebook page that upon arriving to a report of an injured person, “deputies learned that a 22-year old male recreating the area fell and struck his head. Bystanders and responding paramedics were unable to revive him. … He was approximately 100 yards down a steep trail.”
Webb was entering his fifth-year junior season this fall and was projected to be a starter.
