New Jersey high school football player dies after injury during game

A New Jersey high school football player died Wednesday after he was seriously injured in a game earlier this month. 

Linden High School sophomore Xavier McClain, 16, suffered an apparent head injury while returning a kickoff at the beginning of the second half in a game against Woodbridge High School on Sept. 9.

Following the injury, an ambulance was driven on to the field to attend to McClain. 

“With your prayers, Xavier fought a good fight. In the end, he succumbed to the injuries that he sustained a couple weeks ago while playing football during the LHS Tigers’ game vs Woodbridge,” Linden Mayor Derek Armstead wrote on social media.
