Alabama high school basketball star dies after collapsing at practice

Caleb White, a 17-year-old student-athlete from Pinson, Alabama, died Thursday after suffering a medical emergency at school.

White’s death was announced by the Alabama High School Athletic Association.

White, a senior all-state point guard at Pinson Valley High School, collapsed while playing a pickup basketball game with teammates. He received life-saving efforts at the school before being taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to Caleb’s family, his classmates and basketball team and extended school family,” AHSAA executive director Alvin Briggs said. “He was an outstanding student-athlete who played in the North-South All-Star Basketball Game last month. He was an outstanding student-athlete and role model.”
