Tuerk, a four-star high school recruit according to Rivals, started out as a real novice for the Trojans. He moved to guard his second year and later received the first team award for All-Pac 12 in his junior year position. Another move within the line brought him into the middle of his last year, where he showed enough promise to be a draft pick on day two, and the third player in position.
Tuerk started offensive at least once in every position during his college career and was named captain in his junior and senior year.
The San Diego Chargers selected Tuerk with the 66th overall victory in the 2016 NFL draft and stayed with the organization for two seasons. He later spent one season with the Arizona Cardinals in 2017 before being released in 2018.
The chargers released a statement complaining of Tuerk's death. General Manager Tom Telesco praised the player's passion and tenacity.

An enormous competitor. An incredible loss and our support for Greg and Val (his parents) will know that we will be there to support them. I can't imagine myself as a parent. We are so sorry.
