LAS CRUCES, N.M. (KTSM) – After the tragic death of a San Jose State football player, New Mexico State’s game vs. the Spartans on Saturday has been postponed.

No immediate make-up date was announced for the contest.

San Jose State freshman running back Camdan McWright was killed Friday morning when he was struck by a school bus while riding an electric scooter. He was 18 years old.

The university confirmed his death and said it was cooperating with the San Jose Police Department and California Highway Patrol in the matter.

“We lost an amazing young man tragically this morning. Camdan had a bright future ahead of him and everyone in this community that had the opportunity to spend time with him knew that,” San Jose State head coach Brent Brennan said in a statement. “We are still trying to deal with the news of this tragedy, and appreciate everyone’s support during these difficult times. Our thoughts and prayers are with the McWright family and I want them to know we are all here for them. Camdan will always be in our hearts and he will be profoundly missed.”

According to ESPN, the crash took place two blocks from the San Jose State campus and is being investigated by the CHP, which has jurisdiction because McWright was hit by a school bus.

San Jose State said in a statement that the Spartans’ Oct. 22 game at New Mexico State was still pending and that the athletic department would, “do what’s best for the student-athletes.”

New Mexico State officials told KTSM on Friday afternoon that the school was meeting with the team to decide a course of action and whether or not to move forward with the game. The teams do not have a mutual bye week during the remainder of the season that the game could be easily moved to.

“In light of the tragic circumstances involving Camdan McWright, the decision has been made to postpone the game,” said New Mexico State Director of Athletics Mario Moccia in a statement. “All of Aggie Nation’s thoughts and prayers go out to the McWright family, the Spartan football program, the San José State athletic department and university.”

The game was scheduled to be New Mexico State’s homecoming game and activities like the parade and tailgating will still be held. A short program with the team taking the field will be held at 4 p.m., the scheduled kickoff time.

It’s unclear if the game will be rescheduled for a future season, as the game was the second of a home-and-home. Moccia said a decision wouldn’t be imminent with regards to how they will move forward, but with a bye week coming Nov. 5, it’s possible NMSU gets a different opponent that week if it’s decided the SJSU game cannot be played at any point.

San Jose State does not have another open week and the Spartans are currently a first-place team in contention for a possible berth in the Mountain West championship game on Dec. 3. But Moccia said a future game against the Spartans is a possibility.

“Our main focus today was to get our ducks in a row with all of the folks who were coming in for homecoming,” Moccia said. “It’s not a decision that needs to be made today or tomorrow. We need to discuss it with the NCAA, as well, and that is not something that happens in an hour or two. We have to sit down and dig deep into all of the scenarios on the board.”

NMSU’s next game is slated for Oct. 29 at UMass.
