Dylan Steigers (not pictured), listed as a freshman wide receiver on the Eastern Oregon University football roster, died Sunday after suffering a blow to the head during a team scrimmage.

The school said Steigers…was hurt late Saturday. He left the field under his own power, but later vomited on the sideline — a sign of a concussion.

Steigers was transported to Grand Ronde Hospital, then sent to Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise, Idaho, where he died. Medical personnel said Steigers suffered an acute subdural hematoma as the result of a blow to the head. –KC Star.

Details on the actual contact with the head have not been made public. Steigers transferred to Eastern Oregon, an NAIA school, from the University of Montana, and would have been eligible to play this fall. He also had a two-year-old daughter.

Steigers was 21.
