Isaiah Turner
Isaiah Turner the massive defensive tackle and offensive guard passed away this week after a football practice.

Isaiah Turner was a 17 year old defensive tackle/offensive guard who stood at 6050, and weighed 300 pounds. He was entrenched as one of the starting offensive and defensive lineman on the LaSalle College High School football team.

Turner collapsed on a lower-level field after the finish of practice, according to reports. Turner told his teammates he had a pain or cramp in his leg. Turner played on the basketball team and was considered a standout at LaSalle.

Turner was rushed by paramedics to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. Turner told his teammate to get a car and bring it to him, that was before he collapsed according to the Inquirer.

We ask that you please pray for the family, his teammates and his friends. This is such a hard thing to experience. Losing a teammate is hard. The team is expected to dedicate their season to Turner this year. Please say a prayer for his family today.
