RAYMOND, MS (WLBT) - A Hinds Community College student has died after collapsing on the football field.

Twenty-two-year-old William Huzzie of Orlando, Florida., was pronounced dead at Central Mississippi Medical Center. The cause of death is unknown.

 According to college officials, Huzzie was not a member of the football team, but had hoped for a walk-on tryout. He was on the field Tuesday running short sprints with the team. Shortly afterward he had trouble breathing and a trainer called an ambulance.

 On-campus counseling was made available to the football team and other students on campus Tuesday night and Wednesday.

 Huzzie enrolled at Hinds in January.
