ANN ARBOR, Mich., Aug. 18 -- A high school junior who suffered heat stroke during football training has died, the medical examiner's office said.
Jeremy Tarlea, 15, died late Wednesday, one week after collapsing at a three-day conditioning camp run by the Michigan High School Athletic Association.
No autopsy was performed.
Tarlea, an offensive and defensive lineman for Saline High School, was admitted to the pediatric intensive care unit at Mott Children's Hospital. He would have turned 16 next Friday.
"He said he was not feeling well and had taken himself out of the practice," Saline Area Schools Superintendent Ellen Ewing told Friday's Detroit Free Press. "Later, he told the coaches he felt better and asked, 'Will you let me back in?' "
The 6-foot-2 Tarlea collapsed after a 1.5 mile run. Earlier he had vomited during the morning workout and was unable to keep water down.
Saline officials canceled Friday night's preseason scrimmage against Novi in Tarlea's memory.
