19 year old Navy football player dies after collapsing 3 days ago

Navy football player Will McKamey, who has been hospitalized since collapsing at practice three days ago, has died while in a coma today. The academy says the 19 year old freshman running back from Knoxville, Tenn., died at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore on Tuesday with his family by his side.

He collapsed during spring practice Saturday and was airlifted to the hospital.

Earlier this week, McKamey’s family said in a statement released through the school that their son did not sustain “a bad hit or unusual or extreme contact.”
