Yes, but I doubt that it played a role in this tragedy. I believe the rule is that if the heat index is above 104, you don't play (or practice). They check the conditions 10 minutes before kickoff, and if it's over 104, they don't play and have to wait 30 minutes before they check it again.

Thoughts and prayers go to the entire sullivan south family.

Is there a rule on having an ambulance at the games?

Most if not all of our games have an ambulance there, it took 30 minutes for the ambulance to get there last night. I don't know it would've made a difference, just wondering.

I know at GPHS there was an ambulance at every game, but maybe the district and regions all have different specifications on that?

Very sad. I have alway been a proponent of an AED at every school and there at all school activities. Especially after the Davis Nwankwo incident at Vanderbilt.

Also if the heat index is between 96-104, there is an extra timeout taken each quarter. It will be taken around the mid-way point of the quarter.

It's terrible for such a young person to die that way. Our heart and prayers go out to the family and to the school at Sullivan South. Life is precious. Take it a day at a time and get as much in as you can because we never know how long we'll be here on earth. I wonder if there will be an autopsy and what it will be if one is performed?

I really hate this. It's just a game, and something like this has to happen.
