A member of the Amherst College football team died Friday in Mexico City, the Boston Globe's Danny McDonald reported Tuesday. 

According to McDonald, spokeswomen from both Amherst College and the U.S. State Department confirmed the death of Andrew Dorogi, who was a senior economics major at Amherst.

"We extend our deepest sympathies on behalf of the entire Amherst community to his family, friends, teammates, coaches, and teachers," Amherst spokeswoman Caroline Hanna said in an official statement. "At this time, in keeping with the wishes of Andrew’s family, we have no other information to share."

Dorogi, a native of Cleveland, Ohio, appeared in four games during the 2017 season, according to the team's official website. He carried the ball eight times for 30 yards as a senior and played in four games as a freshman in 2014.

Suzanne Stratford of Fox 8 in Cleveland reported Dorogi was spending his spring break in Mexico City at the time of his death.
