YUKON, Okla. – An Oklahoma football player died after collapsing on the field during a game Friday.

According to the Oklahoma Eight-Man Football Coaches Association, Peter Webb, a football player with Southwest Covenant, collapsed on the field Friday night and was rushed to the hospital.

The association says Webb was unconscious and had too much swelling on his brain to operate.


On Sunday, Strother Public Schools announced they learned Webb had passed away.

The association says Webb was the younger brother of the team’s quarterback.

The Webb Family released  a statement to News4 this late afternoon:

"Stacy, Jack, Sam, Ben, Hank and I have been overwhelmed by the love shown to our family since Peter went down friday night. Our hearts are terribly broken, but our god is the god of all comfort and we rest in his love, power, and grace."
