Miami, FL — Police are looking into the death of a Miramar High School Patriots football player, who died during conditioning training Tuesday, July 26, 2011. The player was attending a football conditioning drill at Miramar High when he told his coaches he wasn’t feeling well, reported CBS Miami.

Offensive lineman Isaiah Laurencin, who stood 6’3” and weighed 286 pounds, was sidelined for most of the training session after complaining that he wasn’t feeling good. As everyone was preparing to leave following practice, Laurencin collapsed.
