CHADRON, Neb. (AP) - A football player at a small college in western Nebraska has died following the team’s practice Thursday.

Chadron State College officials said 20-year-old freshman Eric Goll of Haines City, Florida, was taken from the practice field to Chadron Community Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at about 12:30 p.m.

No cause of death was announced. Chadron police and the Dawes County Attorney’s office are investigating.

Coach Jay Long said Goll was one of the happiest people had ever met and that the hearts of the players and coaches are broken for Goll’s family.
