GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina A&T State University says a football player has died from complications of heat illness.

The school said Wednesday that senior Chad Wiley collapsed after a voluntary workout on campus Tuesday. Officials said he was transported to a hospital after an athletic trainer stabilized him.

The 22-year-old from Black Mountain was a two-year starter on the offensive line.

These heart problems seem to be a big reason of death for High School athletes on up. Two deaths in one week is terrible (the hockey player)

Heat illness, not heart illness. There wasn't anything wrong with Wiley, he just made a few stupid decisions. Heat casualties are fairly common.
