Gavin Escobar Cause Of Death
Former NFL Dallas Cowboys tight end Gavin Escobar was found dead after suffering an accident while climbing a rocky area on a peak south of Los Angeles, California.
The victims, found since Wednesday, were identified Friday by the Riverside County Sheriff’s Office after firefighters found their bodies.
Authorities said Escobar, 31, was in an area near Tahquitz Rock in the San Bernardino National Forest, along with another victim named Chelsea Walsh. In the statement, it is mentioned that both climbed a rocky wall.
Gavin Escobar retired in 2018. He came to the NFL as a second-round pick in the 2013 Draft by the Dallas Cowboys out of San Diego State.
With the Cowboys he remained until 2016, during which time he accumulated 333 yards, 30 receptions and eight touchdowns.
He left Dallas to join the Kansas City Chiefs, Baltimore Ravens, Cleveland Browns and Miami Dolphins, teams with which he failed to break out.
The Cowboys mourned the death of their former tight end with a message on their social media.
“You will always be in our hearts, we will always remember you, Gavin Escobar,” lamented the Lone Star team.
After his career in the NFL, the former player entered the Fire Department of Long Beach, California, in February of this year, where thanks to his friendly character and leadership, he earned respect in his new job.
The Long Beach firefighters dedicated a heartfelt farewell to him on their Twitter site accompanied by an image in which Gavin’s photograph appears next to the department’s shield.
“It is with deep sadness that we announce the death, off-duty, of Long Beach Firefighter Gavin Escobar. Hired on February 5, 2022, Firefighter Escobar was assigned to Fire Station 3 on shift B,” was what was written in the release.
Escobar is survived by his wife and two young children.
