This is absolutely tragic. Beekman was an outstanding player for the Cougars, and was going to be a huge part of their defense again this upcoming season.
Unfortunately, he has tragically passed away at the age of 22-years-old. People his age should be entering the prime of their lives.
They shouldn’t be dying. They should be living every day to the fullest. This is simply a tragedy of horrific proportions, and there’s no other way to describe it.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire community of Pullman, the Cougars, his family and everybody impacted by their terrible event.
Whatever is happening with the WSU football team right now is not good news…. pic.twitter.com/GILJWruuYw
