This is sad:

A University of Mississippi football player has died after collapsing during the first day of team workouts. The university says 20-year-old Bennie F. Abram died Friday at a hospital in Oxford. The non-scholarship junior transferred from Itawamba Community College last fall.

Trainers noticed that Abram was having difficulty early Friday shortly after the workout started. Officials say the trainers began first aid and called 911. Abram died several hours later. Lafayette County Coroner Rocky Kennedy says an autopsy will be performed Saturday. He says there’s no foul play involved. The high temperature in Oxford reached 57 degrees Friday.

Coach Houston Nutt called Abram a hard worker and fine young man.

R.I.P. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family…
