GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Guilford County school officials say a 13-year-old boy has died a day after getting sick at football practice.

District athletic director Leigh Hebbard told media outlets that the student was going to be a freshman in the fall at Page High School.

Hebbard says the teen was attending a conditioning workout around 5 p.m. Monday when he became ill and was taken to the hospital. Officials did not know if he lost consciousness before he got medical help.

The student died Tuesday. Officials did not release his name or the cause of his death.

School officials say the teen had a physical before starting practice and was an “A” student.
