Officials say they received a report of two injured rock climbers at Tahquitz Rock in Idyllwild at around 12:25 PM on Wednesday. When they made it to the scene, they say they found that both victims had died. Escobar was ID’ed as one of the hikers — a 33-year-old woman, Chelsea Walsh, was ID’ed as the other.

Further details surrounding the causes of death were not immediately available. Authorities did say they were investigating it all.

Escobar was a star for San Diego State from 2010 to 2013 … before he was drafted by the Cowboys. He went on to play four seasons in Dallas — piling up eight touchdowns.

He later saw time with the Chiefs, Browns, Ravens and Dolphins — and eventually wrapped up his football career in 2019 in the Alliance of American Football league.

In retirement, Escobar — a father of two — had become a firefighter with the Long Beach Fire Department.

The Cowboys, Aztecs and the LBFD all paid homage to Escobar and his family on Thursday night.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to Gavin’s family,” SDSU football head coach Brady Hoke said in a statement. “I know his wife, Sarah, and daughters, Josey and Charlotte, were everything to him. Gavin was a great man, father, son and teammate, and will be deeply missed by all.”

RIP.
