Annapolis, MD, United States (NewsBahn) – Will McKamey, a freshman running back hospitalized after collapsing at a Navy football practice three days ago, died Tuesday while in a coma. He was 19.
“We are all so very heartbroken by the death of Midshipman Will McKamey,” Naval Academy superintendent Vice Adm. Mike Miller said in a statement. “This is devastating news for his family, his classmates, his teammates and the entire Naval Academy family. We offer our deepest condolences to Will’s family, friends and shipmates in the wake of this tragedy.”
Despite reviewing practice film, no particular play appeared to set off the event. He was hospitalized in 2012, however, after suffering a head injury in a high school football game.
