  1. So, so sad – I have been praying constantly for the family, I guess they can take some comfort in knowing that he died from doing what he loved… such a tragedy.

  2. My prayers certainly go out to the family. It seems every year something like this happens. I think there should be more done to educate coaches not to push kids beyond their limit – especially in extreme humidity. This was such an avoidable loss of life.
