A Texas high school basketball player died after collapsing during a game Tuesday night, according to the district and local news reports. The student was a player for Alto High School, about 140 miles from Dallas.

 

“Out of respect for the family and in light of student privacy obligations, the District cannot provide details at this time,” the Alto Independent School District said in a statement on Facebook. “During the coming days and weeks, we will provide our students, staff, and community the support needed to process this tragedy.”

 

Grief counselors and local pastors will be available at the high school, the district said. “All of the Alto ISD sends its deepest condolences to the student’s family. Please keep our community in your prayers,” it said.

 

The district did not name the student. A relative identified him to the Tyler Morning Telegraph as D. Mumphrey. Last year, Mumphrey was voted the District 22-2A Newcomer of the Year. In February, he was nominated for the Dave Campbell’s Mr. Texas Basketball Player of the Week award.
