HOUSTON (AP) - A Rice University football player died Monday, a day after collapsing during a light workout.

Dale Lloyd, a 19-year-old freshman defensive back, collapsed on the field about 5 p.m. Sunday but was conscious when taken to a hospital. He died about 9 a.m. Monday, school officials said.
An autopsy was pending.

Lloyd played in Rice's season opener against Houston but didn't play in the last three games. The team was planning on redshirting him.

RIP. Let's not forget Thomas Herrion or the other players who unfortunately died playing football.

Very sad news. RIP

I also immediately thought of Thomas Herrion. This guy was even younger.
