Late last night, former Oregon Ducks tight end Colt Lyerla was busted by an undercover cop for possessing and snorting cocaine in a parking lot. He was still on the Oregon team as recently as three weeks ago, but decided to leave early to focus on preparing for the NFL Draft. The news of Lyerla’s arrest is pretty disappointing — it’s not fun to watch an athlete waste his potential, particularly in such a fast and downward spiral. One of his former teammates, wide receiver Josh Huff, took to Twitter to express his sadness: My heart just dropped. **** so sad mannn….dude has all the talent in the world. Pray that God gives him the strength — Huff 2Live (@Huff_Era_1) October 24, 2013 God be with my former teammate!!! — Huff 2Live (@Huff_Era_1) October 24, 2013 I think Huff likely sums up what many others are thinking — this is just a sad situation. Hopefully Lyerla can wake up here and start getting his life back on track.
