Weber State’s All Time Leading Rusher Trevyn Smith died in police custody

Weber State’s All Time Leading Rusher Trevyn Smith died in police custody at the age of 32.

Former Weber State All-Time leading rusher Trevyn Smith died on July 4 at the age of 32 after spending the last three days of his life in the Salt Lake County Jail, and according to Gephardt Daily.

The running back was one of the best players in program history, rushing for 5,029 yards, the fourth-most ever in Big Sky Conference history. He added 43 rushing touchdowns and had 6,420 all-purpose yards.

Officers had arrested 32-year-old Smith July 1 on warrants, and he was booked into jail.

“I can confirm there was a medical incident and he was transported to the hospital,” Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Sgt. Kevin Hunter told Gephardt Daily.

“Beyond that, the incident is being investigated by South Salt Lake Police so we will not be commenting further.”

I do not know what happened, but this is a very tragic incident.
