LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — An official says a former Texas Tech baseball player drowned at a lake over the holiday weekend after suffering head and neck trauma when he dove into shallow water at a lake.

Wayne Mack, a Montgomery County justice of the peace, said Tuesday that the cause of death for 21-year-old Elliot Richoux (ree-SHOO') was drowning, which was a result of the head and neck injuries suffered in the dive from a dock.

Richoux died Friday at Lake Conroe (KAHN'-roh) in Southeast Texas.

Richoux was a second-team All-American catcher at Howard College in Big Spring before playing the 2013 season with the Red Raiders. Richoux, who did not play this season for Tech, earned all-state honors playing for The Woodlands High School.
