Death of Wayne State College player investigated
WAYNE, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska authorities are investigating the death of an 18-year-old Wayne State College football player who was found dead in his dorm room.
An autopsy was scheduled to be performed Sunday on Eddie Key III’s body. He was found in his dorm room around 7 p.m. Saturday.
Key played defensive end for Wayne State last fall after he graduated from Lincoln North Star High School in Lincoln, Neb., in 2013. He was a second-team All-Nebraska player and was recognized for his play on the offensive line at North Star as a high school junior and senior.
Key’s high school coach, Mark Waller, said the young man had appeared to have a bright future.
“He was just a great kid,” Waller said. “It’s a tragic situation. We loved Eddie and we’re going to miss him.”
The Lincoln school district plans to send counselors to North Star to visit with Key’s former teammates and classmates.
