A Philadelphia high school football player died after collapsing on the field while warming up for a scrimmage Tuesday night.
West Catholic Preparatory High School student Ivan Hicks, 16, was set to be involved in a 7-on-7 scrimmage against Coatesville High School, the Chester County Coroner’s Office said. He died as he was warming up before the game started, a Coatesville High School spokeswoman said.
Parents at the scene performed CPR before he was rushed to Brandywine Hospital, the spokeswoman said.
He was pronounced dead at 6:43 p.m. The coroner’s office said an autopsy was scheduled for Friday to determine a cause of death.
