SHERMAN, Texas (AP) -An Austin College football player died after collapsing during a pickup basketball game on campus following an offseason workout, a school spokesman said.
Jeff Kelly confirmed Tuesday that 20-year-old linebacker Zach Swirczynski died the night before.
Teammate Scooter Means told the Sherman Herald Democrat that he had just arrived at the gym when Swirczynski collapsed between 5:30 and 6 p.m. Swirczynski was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Swirczynski was a 5-foot-8, 215-pound sophomore for the Division III school about 60 miles north of Dallas.
