This is tragic.  Each year several apparently healthy young athletes die suddenly.  Subsequently, we learn that they had medical conditions that could not be detected during routine, properly conducted physical examinations.  Nobody is to blame.  However, in today's Vindicator we learn that this is the second Kent football player to die suddenly within four years.  That would certainly catch my attention if I were the parent of a prospective athlete.

Kent State University football player Tyler Heintz likely died as a result of "hyperthermia," a dangerously high body temperature, following practice with the Golden Flashes on Tuesday morning at Dix Stadium.

Portage County Coroner Dr. Dean DePerro said preliminary autopsy results showed Heintz, 18, had "a very high body temperature."
