The recent death of a Louisiana High School student from what appears to be a football related injury raises a question as to the dangers of the sport as well as the future of the sport.  It was reported that Tyrell Cameron, a 16-year-old Franklin Parish High School player, was hurt while covering a punt in the 4th Quarter of a game against Sterlington High School.  Tyrell collapsed after colliding with another player.  A full autopsy will be performed to determine if there were any other causes or conditions that contributed to the tragic death of this teenager.
