CHESTER COUNTY, Pa. (CBS) —  Ivan Hicks, the West Catholic Prep High School student who collapsed and died during a July scrimmage, passed away from hypertensive cardiovascular disease, according to the Chester County coroner.

The coroner said the 16-year-old incoming junior was positive for the virus that causes COVID; however, the coroner said no COVID respiratory disease was found, leaving medical officials to believe the virus didn’t contribute to his death.

Hicks collapsed during a water break and died at the hospital. His father previously told CBS he loved football and family.
