LA GRANDE, Ore.– Eastern Oregon officials say a football player has died of injuries suffered during the team's spring football game.
Spokesman Tim Seydel says Dylan Steigers took a blow to the head late in Saturday's scrimmage. He walked off the field, but later vomited on the sidelines, a sign of concussion.
The trainer called 911 and Steigers was rushed to the hospital. Doctors said he suffered an acute subdural hematoma as a result of the head injury.
Steigers died Sunday; he was 21.
Steigers joined the Eastern Oregon NAIA football program this spring after transferring from the University of Montana. He was listed as a freshman receiver on the Eastern Oregon roster.
