    How sad! It seems that they did all that they could to prevent that sort of problem, yet it still happened...what more can they do?

    Tragic. LLnP to the family of this young man.


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?

    Thats awful.

    But there is really no stopping it, the player just has to listen to his body, and not be afraid to stop playing. The temperature was not that high either.

    But unfortunately, with the hot summer we're having there will probably be more. So to all of you on here who play, or have a son who plays, make sure you're hydated and stay cool, and dont be afraid to be called a pussy. I'd rather be a pussy than dead.

    That's a shame. We had a kid in York die a few years ago from heat exhaustion. Most people can handle it, but if there is someone with a weak heart that isn't known or some other hidden problem, it can be deadly. It's a shame that a kid tries to play a high school sport and ends up dead because of it.

    My God, 79% humidity? That's brutal no matter WHAT the temperature! I feel really bad for the school, the town and especially the kid's family.

    A friend told me that he Ryan had been complaining of leg scramps for a couple of days prior. autopsy came back today inconclusive. They will do a deeper investigation and should have results within a month. Y'all can read about it at http://www.courierpress.com/news/gleaner/
