Kent State freshman football player dies after conditioning workout

The extended Kent State football family was forced to deal with the death of a player in 2014.

Kent State has released a statement confirming the death of freshman offensive lineman Tyler Heintz, who was rushed to the hospital following conditioning drills on Tuesday.

While there's been nothing official yet from the school, WKTN radio in Kenton, Ohio, is reporting that Tyler Heintz collapsed after a workout on KSU's campus earlier Tuesday and died. Tyler was transported to a local hospital by paramedics this morning following football conditioning drills at Dix Stadium.

His cause of death is still unknown.

The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office will conduct a postmortum on Wednesday morning.

Tragedy struck college football Tuesday. He was taken to University Hospitals Portage Medical Center where doctors reportedly worked on him for two hours.

The Kenton Football 2017 Twitter page said "Shocked and bewildered is all we can say".

"The post-mortem is just one piece of the puzzle", he said. Investigators are now in the process of collecting hospital records, gathering reports of any medical history, and interviewing any players who was with Heintz at the time he collapsed. According to the Record Courier, DePerro said the autopsy's conclusion may not arrive for several weeks. Pray for his family.

At 9:20 p.m. Kent State's communications and marketing department did release a brief statement. He also writes for Screen Rant, Little White Lies, and PopMatters.
