A Michigan high school basketball player collapsed on the court after making the game winning layup in overtime that finalized his team’s perfect season. He died shortly after and a cause of death is yet to be determined according to Holland Hospital spokeswoman, Deb Patterson.

16-year old Wes Leonard of Fennville High was pronounced dead at the hospital after paramedics unsuccessfully performed CPR on him.

The last Fennville athlete death occurred 14 months ago when 14-year old wrestler Nathaniel Hernanedez died of a seizure at his home following a high school wrestling match in which he participated.
