The death of a college football player who perished in a cliff-diving accident has devastated a Texas community.
Brexten Green, a 20-year-old athlete from Emporia State University, passed away on July 2 at Oklahoma’s Grand Lake, the university reported.
At 6:30 p.m., the Grand River Dam Authority learned that a man had leaped off a cliff at Dripping Springs but had never returned. A man’s body was found 31 feet underwater when rescue workers arrived on the site, according to Oklahoma’s KFOR.
The news source claimed that although authorities have not yet recognised his remains, Green’s friends and family have confirmed that it is indeed him.
A request for response from PEOPLE was not immediately answered by the Grand River Dam Authority.
On the school’s website, Emporia State football coach Garin Higgins remarked, “It’s a terrible day for Emporia State football and just a devastating loss for the Green family.” Brexten was a fantastic teammate who had a great deal of passion for this football programme.
He demonstrated it by his spirit of competition, hard ethic, and desire to stand for his colleagues.
He will always be a member of our football team, the Hornets.

After having redshirted the previous season, his death occurs only a few months before he was scheduled to start his sophomore year at the university.
The 2020 Oklahoma Class A State Champion Cashion High School Wildcats athlete, who is 5’10” and weighs 190 pounds, was an All-State selection, according to the university. After scoring 27 touchdowns in his senior season, he was voted the District A-3 Player of the Year.
In addition, he gained 409 rushing yards and 1,720 receiving yards.
Higgins lauded the late athlete for his commitment “to being the best player he could be” and claimed that because of such qualities, he “might have evolved into a fantastic player for us.”
He lived the fundamental tenets of our programme and was a typical ESU athlete. He will be sorely missed. His parents, Brett and LaMae, as well as the entire family, are in our thoughts and prayers, he added.
On Friday at 4 p.m., he will be laid to rest. The school also stated that there are on-site grief counsellors for students.
