A Drexel University lacrosse player was killed last week in an accident.

Drexel Athletic Department confirmed Sunday that last Wednesday freshman Max Brindle of Wayne, Pennsylvania died in an accident. Officials said Monday that Brindle was riding a bicycle at the time of the accident, but did not have any more specifics about what lead to his death.

Brindle was a student in Drexel's business school.

Max grew up in Wayne, attending Radnor High School for two years. He then transferred to the Salisbury School in Connecticut.

Brindle was a standout athlete, being named a First Team All-New England selection as well as being his team's Defensive Player of the year. He was also an All-League selection in football, and Salisbury's Defensive MVP at linebacker.

So far there's no word on what caused the crash that claimed Brindle's life.
