Washington State football star Bryce Beekman has died at the age of 22.

Beekman, who was entering his final year of football for the Cougars, died Tuesday night, and the cause of death isn’t known at this time, according to The Spokesman-Review.

The article goes on to state the following:

His death was confirmed by multiple other reports.

Theo Lawson of the Spokesman Review announced in a series of Twitter posts, “I’ve been able to confirm through Pullman Police that Bryce Beekman, a redshirt senior on #WSU‘s football team, has died. Pullman Police Commander Jake Opgenorth expects the coroner’s office to release more information soon, including the cause of death. Beekman was 22 years old.”

“Tragedy in Pullman. Bryce Beekman, a 22-year-old redshirt senior who started all 13 games at free safety for #WSU last season, has died according to Pullman Police. We’ll continue to update the story as we learn more about the death,” he added.

“As others have reported, Pullman Police were responding to a “breathing problems” call when they arrived at Bryce Beekman’s apartment & found the #WSU football player dead. There were no signs of foul play, according to Commander Jake Opgenorth,” Lawson reported.

“We’re still waiting on more specific details regarding the cause of death. The Whitman County Coroner’s Office has that information. I’ve reached out multiple times, to no avail,” he added.

The Seattle Times reported that Beekman had recently traveled home to Louisiana for spring break. The paper provided the following additional details:

Spring workouts in Pullman, originally scheduled to begin Friday, were postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak and athletic department officials planned to reevaluate the situation on April 2. WSU students were encouraged to stay at their permanent residence after spring break and Cougars coach Nick Rolovich told reporters Tuesday on a conference call the majority of his team had not returned to campus.

    Do you intend to make a news item out of every test result and death? You’re a fear monger and a snake oil salesman… You almost used to be a newsman once… and remember when you thought you were going to run for President?

    How far you’ve fallen… suggesting your snake oil could ward off coronavirus.

    Get tested and give us that result. Not for coronavirus… get an IQ test.
