    He was the captain of our rival schools football team, they were playing in the basketball game before ours in a christmas tournament. he passed out athalftime and had a seizure- then his heart stopped. He passed today on his eighteenth birthday, he also had a son. I'd never had someone die so close to meand it feels really weird. So just R.I.P to him and I'm praying for his family.

    RIP.


    He had a condition or something? Thats just crazy. I know of a girl who played for her HS, she caught a hard pass to the chest and died.

    What happened to the rest of the tournament? Id be too shook to play if my game was next.

    That's sad R.I.P. That's why my mom says they need to do a better job of checking up on athletes. When an athlete around my age dies, it basically hitsclose to home with me.

    Its crazy that atheletes would die from unknown heart conditions.

    Sometimes I feel pain in my chest area when I play basketball. Thing is its only been recent, past few months and it doenst happen everytime I play ball. Iguess its either im really out of shape and my heart is working super hard or something. Ive had a stress test done, few EKGs and bloodworks a few months ago.Everything is normal but hearing about undetected conditions really makes you wonder after so many tests, how can you be sure you are ok.
