A New York high school football player who collapsed after colliding with an opponent during a game died at a Long Island hospital after undergoing surgery.

The Associated Press reported authorities as saying Tom Cutinella, a player for Shoreham-Wading River High School, died at a hospital Wednesday night after suffering a head injury during a game with John Glenn High School in Elwood.

A spokeswoman for the school districts told Newsday that Cutinella had been in the intensive-care unit after undergoing surgery.

Suffolk County police said the collision happened about 6 p.m. Cutinella, a guard/linebacker, was injured during the third quarter of the varsity game.

Dozens of teammates, relatives and friends waited at the hospital for an update on his condition. As news of his death spread, two people fell to the floor weeping.
