High School Football Star Suffers Stroke After Scoring Touchdown

Via NYDaily News reports:

Tragedy struck a Kansas high school when its star football player died after suffering a stroke moments after scoring a touchdown.

Andre Maloney, 17, tried to high five a teammate after catching the 63-yard pass for Shawnee Mission West High School against Leavenworth West on Thursday night.

But the senior wide receiver stumbled and collapsed.

The Kansas recruit was treated on the field and then rushed to hospital, where doctors said there was a blood clot on his brain.
The teen who had been recruited to play for Kansas University next year was just about to high five a teammate when he collapsed.

They tried to operate, but it could not be removed. He died the following day.

Hundreds have paid tribute to Maloney, who had also been offered scholarships at Iowa State, Kansas State, Minnesota, Missouri, Oklahoma State and Tulsa.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with Andre’s family, teammates, coaches, fellow students and the SM West staff during this difficult time,” said district spokesman Leigh Anne Neal.
