JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Peyton Flowers, a senior linebacker on the Loyd Star football team, has died at a Jackson hospital from an apparent brain injury.

His death Thursday at the University of Mississippi Medical Center from an apparent brain injury was confirmed by his football coach Adam Cook and school officials.

Cook says the cause of Flowers’ death has not been released by the hospital at the request of the family.

The 18-year-old Flowers was apparently injured during an Oct. 31 game. He fell unconscious on the sideline and was rushed to the hospital.

UMMC doctors had been treating Flowers for a subdural hematoma, or brain bleed.
