Reed Ryan, a talented college football player, passed away at the young age of 22.

Earlier last month, during a workout, the defensive end for the University of Minnesota collapsed.

Ryan attended North Dakota State for his first four years of college before moving to Duluth for the summer.

The 6-foot-3 star, who is from Wisconsin, had a career-high eight total tackles so far this season.

According to a family-written obituary, Ryan passed away on November 21 while exercising in the gym after a training session.

His cause of death was a “undetected genetic heart condition.”

Ruan was transported to St. Mary’s-Duluth hospital after UOM medical personnel tried CPR on him on the spot.

Curt Wiese, head coach of the Bulldogs, released a sad statement on Tuesday in the wake of Ryan’s passing.

Wiese stated: “The loss of Reed has devastated our players and staff.

“Reed strived to improve daily at whatever task was in front of him. His upbeat demeanor, contagious grin, and sincere concern for those around him enabled him to bring out the best in others.

“We were fortunate to have Reed on our team, and he made our program, our department, and our community a better place in a short period of time.

“Reed will be greatly missed, but his legacy will live on forever. He was the epitome of a UMD Bulldog, and what we can all aspire to be.

“To his family, thank you for allowing us to be part of his inspiring young life. Reed was a Bulldog through and through.”

In high school, Ryan won the State of Wisconsin Defensive Player of the Year.

Per The Duluth News Tribune, he had more than 100 career wins and achieved an individual state runner-up finish as a wrestler.

NDSU football released a statement on Thursday, writing: “[Reed was] the ultimate teammate, a constant source of joy, a genuine selfless spirit, and a beloved friend.

“We will miss you. Your legacy will live on.”
