A Georgia high school football player died this week after suffering a medical emergency on the sideline of a junior varsity football game.
According to WTOC, the Chatham County coroner identified the Windsor Forest student-athlete as 15-year-old Keshaun Allen. An autopsy has been scheduled to determine an official cause of death.
The Savannah-Chatham County Public School System said Allen, who was on the Windsor Forest High School junior varsity team, suffered a medical emergency on the sideline.
The school system said Allen had played earlier in the game but was rotated out of the lineup and was watching from the sidelines.
The school system said trainers and EMS staff began life-saving measures on the sideline. Allen was taken to the Children’s Hospital where he was pronounced deceased shortly after arrival.
