Football Player Dies After Collapsing at Practice
SPRING VALLEY, Ill. (AP) -- Grief counselors have been called in to help students at Hall High School deal with the death of one of the football players at the north-central Illinois school.

Police in Spring Valley tell WGLC Radio that the team was 20 minutes into its practice Wednesday when 17-year-old Daniel Lule collapsed during a non-contact agility drill.

The teen later was pronounced dead at Saint Margaret's Hospital. The Bureau County Coroner's Office is working to determine his cause of death.
