College football player tragically dies in cliff diving accident
Emporia State University football player Brexten Green died in a cliff diving accident on July 3.
Green, a redshirt freshman, died at Oklahoma’s Grand Lake on Sunday. Emporia State Athletics announced Green’s death in a statement (via The Spun):
“It’s a terrible day for Emporia State football and just a devastating loss for the Green family,” football coach Garin Higgins said.”Brexten was a great teammate who cared so much about this football program. It showed in his competitive spirit, his work ethic and his willingness to be there for his teammates. He will always be a part of our Hornet football family.”
He was ready to begin his second year with the program in the fall. In 2020, Green was an All-State selection as a high school senior at Oklahoma’s Cashion High School.
