BOWLING GREEN, Ohio -- A Bowling Green football player died at a hospital Wednesday after becoming ill during the first 10 minutes of practice, school officials said.
Aaron Richardson, a freshman, was taken to Wood County Hospital, where he died, athletic department spokesman J.D. Campbell said.
There was no obvious cause of death and an autopsy was planned for Thursday, said Wood County coroner Douglas Hess.
Richardson, a native of Sandusky, was participating in his first practice as a non-recruited walk-on, Campbell said.
Campbell didn't know what Richardson was doing when he got sick.
"The university is reviewing the circumstances surrounding Aaron's passing," said Ed Whipple, Bowling Green's vice president for student affairs.
