The second death was recorded on Wednesday when school authorities confirmed the death of Tom Cutinella, a guard/line-backer for Shoreham-Wading River High School, who gave up the ghost at the hospital after he suffered a head injury during a high school game against John Glenn High School in Elwood

A school district spokeswoman told Newsday that Cutinella had been in the intensive-care unit after undergoing surgery: his death was with sobriety and weeping

Third on the list of pro-footballers who died in a space of one week is Cornerback Demario Harris Jr. of Charles Henderson High School, who collapsed on the field after he was tackled
