(ABC News) — A football player at Kent State University has died following a morning workout.
The university says paramedics transported Tyler Heintz to a hospital following football conditioning drills at Dix Stadium on Tuesday.
The Portage County coroner confirmed his death later that evening.
Heintz was a freshman from Kenton and was recruited from Kenton High School to play as an offensive lineman.
His former high school sent a tweet Tuesday saying they were “shocked and bewildered” after his death.
