Apalachee football player dies at home, autopsy planned
By The Associated Press
BETHLEHEM -- Authorities plan an autopsy to try and learn what caused the death of a high school football player in northeast Georgia.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that 17-year-old Jordan Bracken-Howley died suddenly Monday morning.
Jordan Bracken-Howley would have been a senior at Apalachee High School, where he played as an offensive and defensive lineman.
Coach Shane Davis told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he complained of a headache on Sunday and just wasn't feeling good. Davis said that when his father tried to wake him early Monday, the teen was unresponsive and could not be revived. The coach said he last saw the teen at football practice Friday, and he showed no ill effects then.
An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday.
