    Oregon redshirt freshman drowns during inner-tube trip

    EUGENE, Ore. -- A redshirt freshman on the University of Oregon football team has died after trying to swim the McKenzie River during an inner-tube trip down the river.

    The university said in a statement that 19-year-old Todd Doxey was with several teammates Sunday afternoon in the Cascade Range stream.

    It said that most of the party started down the river, but Doxey decided to jump off a bridge.

    He swam across the current toward a boat ramp. But, the Lane County sheriff's office says, he tired and couldn't hold his head above water.

    A fisherman in a drift boat retrieved him and began administering CPR.

    He was listed initially in critical condition but died about 8 p.m. Sunday at Sacred Heart Medical Center in Eugene.

    Doxey was a graduate of Hoover High School in San Diego.

    Seems like a strange story. Why couldn't he hold his head above water? It sounds like he knew how to swim. I'm confused...

    R.I.P.
