Officials say a 15-year-old high school student collapsed after football practice and later died at a Northern California hospital. The East Bay Times reports Giovanni Pulido had just finished doing conditioning drills at Alameda’s Encinal Junior and Senior High School when he collapsed Tuesday. Team captain Makel Hale tells San Francisco television station KGO-TV that the team was waiting to go home after working out in high temperatures, which were in the 80s, when Pulido collapsed.

Principal Kirsten Zazo says help was summoned immediately after it appeared the teenager was having a medical emergency. Grief counselors and school administrators visited each of Pulido’s classes Wednesday. Officials say a cause of death will not be available for up to 12 weeks.
