BUFORD, Ga. (AP) - A high school basketball player has died three days after he collapsed during a preseason workout.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports 16-year-old Adam Smith died Sunday night at Northside Hospital-Forsyth. The Buford High School junior was taken to the hospital last Thursday after he collapsed onto the floor while running. School officials say Smith fell moments after he told a teacher he didn't feel well.
Buford High School principal Banks Bitterman called Smith "an awesome young man" and said dealing with his death will be a tough for the school.
The cause of Smith's death was not immediately available. Funeral arrangements were still being made Monday.
