Grand Canyon University hoops star, 23-year-old Oscar Frayer, was a very talented basketball player. He scored 8 points in his team’s NCAA Tournament game last Saturday, but it seems that game will now be remembered as his last. We have some very sad news to report as Frayer has recently passed away.
According to TMZ, Frayer was one of three people riding inside of an SUV at around 2:30 AM Tuesday in Lodi, California. As stated by California Highway Patrol officials, the vehicle veered off the road and crashed into a CHP patrol vehicle.
The vehicle was said to have continued onwards and crashed into a tree and then caught fire. All three passengers including Frayer’s older sister, Andrea Moore lost their lives.
Frayer was touted as one of “the most accomplished players” in GCU basketball history by the school officials. Here is what head coach Bryce Drew said regarding the tragic accident:
”He was the heartbeat of our team with his vibrant, energetic personality. I cannot put into words the hurt and sadness we all feel, but we know he is in heaven and that gives us great joy to know we will be together again.”
It is truly a shame Frayer lost his life at such a young age as he had a very bright future ahead of him. We would like to offer our deepest condolences to Frayer’s family and friends during this tragic time.
