After a San José State University football player died unexpectedly this morning, SJSU officials announced today the team would not be traveling to Las Cruces for tomorrow’s homecoming matchup against the Aggies.
Camdan McWright, a freshman running back for the Spartans, was killed Friday morning while riding an electric scooter just two blocks from the SJSU campus in San Jose, California. McWright was reportedly struck by a school bus and died on the scene due to injuries sustained in the accident.
SJSU Director of Athletics Jeff Konya announced this afternoon in a press release that the team would not be making the trip to Las Cruces.
“In light of the tragic circumstances involving Camdan McWright, we have made the decision with New Mexico State to postpone the game, originally scheduled for this Saturday, to a future date in the 2022 schedule,” Konya said. “I want to publicly acknowledge Mario Moccia, Jerry Kill and Braun Cartwright for their efforts in accommodating this request during this very difficult time.”
