Teigan Martin, a South Florida Bulls tight end, was killed in a car crash in Minnesota Monday, according to the Carver County Sheriff’s Office. 

Martin was 20 years old.

The Sheriff’s Office found Martin after a 2013 BMW M5 crashed into a ditch on a county road in Minnesota. 

According to KSTP.com, an investigation of the wreck found Martin had been traveling at a high rate of speed when the vehicle crossed over into the opposite lane and flipped over as it fell into a ditch. 

While an investigation continues, it was determined Martin was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.

USF football released a statement via social media after learning of Martin’s death. 

“We are deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Teigan Martin,” the statement on X said.
“We extend our thoughts and prayers to Teigan’s family, friends, and all who knew and loved him.”

Martin, 6-foot-6 and 226 pounds, transferred to USF last season after playing at Liberty University. However, he never saw playing time for the Bulls during the 2023 campaign.
