Furman football player dies following medical emergency during practice

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) – A Furman University football player who was in critical condition following a medical emergency on Wednesday died Friday, according to Furman University.
Bryce Stanfield, a junior health sciences major from Acworth, Georgia, collapsed unexpectedly during a morning workout on Wednesday, the university said. He was immediately taken to Greenville Memorial Hospital and placed on life support, according to President Elizabeth Davis.
