This is extremely sad to hear.

Evan Murray, a senior at Warren Hills Regional High School died after sustaining an injury in a varsity football game, school officials said.

No details about his injury were immediately made public. According to a GoFundMe fundraising page set up for the Murray family, Evan was “hit in the back field and suffered a life taking injury.”

Evan was a bright student who “excelled in academics and in sports,” and was a three-sport athlete, the fundraising page said. He served as varsity quarterback since sophomore year and was a varsity baseball pitcher and varsity basketball player.

More than $12,000 had been raised for his family as of early Saturday afternoon.

The sudden death prompted an outpouring of support on social media.
