West Virginia HS football player dies after collapsing during Sept. 27 game

The principal at South Harrison High School says a standout football player who collapsed at a game last month has died.

Principal Greg Moore says 17-year-old Dylan Jeffries died Sunday night.

Media outlets report Jeffries had been placed in a medically induced coma at Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown after undergoing surgery to have a blood clot removed from his brain. The running back collapsed on the sidelines during a Sept. 27 game against Lincoln.

Moore says additional counselors were at the school Monday to assist grieving students and faculty. After-school activities have been canceled.

Moore says funeral information is incomplete.

More than 1,000 people attended a vigil for Jeffries last week.
