Spencer Webb died Wednesday after falling on rock slides and hitting his head.
He was 22 years old.
Webb, a tight end on the Oregon football team, died when he fell on the slides west of Triangle Lake which are located about 35 miles west of the university’s campus in Eugene.
His death has now been confirmed by the Lane County Sheriff’s office.
“Lane County Sheriff’s Office has now confirmed Oregon Ducks tight end Spencer Webb suffered fatal injuries from a fall while near Triangle Lake on Wednesday,” Oregon reporter James Crepea said.
Bystanders and paramedics were unable to revive him when deputies arrived on the scene. He was found “approximately 100 yards down a steep trail” and search and rescue personnel assisted with bringing him back to the roadway, authorities said.
“There is no evidence of foul play and his death appears to be accidental,” the sheriff’s office said.
Webb joined the Ducks in 2018, where he redshirted as a freshman. He played in nine games in 2019 where he tallied 18 receptions for 209 yards and three touchdowns. Webb tallied 13 receptions for 87 yards and a touchdown in 2021 following a pandemic-shortened 2020 campaign.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
