FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- A former Archbishop Murphy football player was injured in a car crash that claimed the life of a University of Wyoming football player on Monday, authorities said.
J.J. Quinlan, of Everett, was injured when the pickup he was riding in drifted off a Colorado highway and crashed. Quinlan along with two other men, Trey Fox, of Glenwood Springs, Colo., and Christian Morgan, of Aurora, Colo., were taken to hospitals in Laramie, Wyo., and Loveland, Colo.
The nature and extent of Quinlan's injuries weren't known.
"J.J.'s OK," Archbishop Murphy High School athletic director Rick Stubrud said of Quinlan, a 2009 graduate of Archbishop Murphy. Quinlan was hospitalized after the wreck and then released later Monday morning, Stubrud said.
Quinlan spoke with Archbishop Murphy assistant football coach Jeff Schmidt on Monday. Quinlan is "upset, obviously, but physically OK," Stubrud said, relaying what Quinlan told Schmidt.
Ruben Narcisse, the Wyoming player who died in the wreck, was Quinlan's roommate, Stubrud said.
Quinlan is a redshirt freshman linebacker at Wyoming. He previously attended Central Washington University.
Fox was driving and apparently fell asleep, investigators said. They said alcohol and drugs aren't believed to be factors.
Wyoming coach Dave Christensen, an Everett High grad, called it a "terrible tragedy, and a terrible loss." He offered his support to the players' families.
