Boy dies after HS football workout in Grand Ledge

Boy dies after HS football workout in Grand Ledge”

Bird said he's extremely proud of how Everson's fellow teammates and school staff leapt into action. He was also a member of WKAR's STEM-focused TV show, 'Curious Crew'.

Football coach Matt Bird said Guild had just finished a lift when fellow students noticed something was wrong at about 8.42am.

A medical examiner is reviewing the death of a Grand Ledge student who died Monday during a football workout in the high school's weight room, school officials said today.

[Everson Guild] is a young man who had the handsome ability to talk to the quietest person in the room and the most vocal person in the room and make them feel important.

"This is a young man who had the handsome ability to talk to the quietest person in the room and the most vocal person in the room and make them feel important", said Guild.

Everson's mother, Laura Guild, released this statement.

"The Guild family would like to thank the Grand Ledge community for their continued support through this hard time". The show takes young people from our area and teaches them hands-on science, technology, engineering and math lessons during programs produced at WKAR.

Cast and crew for WKAR's "Curious Crew" said their hearts were "broken" to learn about Everson's death.

The school district tells our Lansing sister station WLNS that freshman Everson Guild was participating in weight training when he collapsed and lost consciousness. We will miss his humor and enthusiasm.

Within minutes, emergency crews were on scene and transported him to Sparrow Hospital, but he couldn't be revived. "To family and friends of Everson, we send our condolences".

A statement by Dr. Brian Metcalf the Grand Ledge Superintendent says, "we lost an exceptional young man who was at the beginning of what promised to be an exciting high school career".
