A football player at Kent State University has died following a morning workout.

Heintz, 19, was transported to University Hospitals Portage Medical Center by the Kent Fire Department, where he was pronounced dead at 11:34 a.m. Tuesday, said Dr. Dean DePerro, Portage County Coroner. A part of the Golden Flashes' 2017 recruiting class, Heintz meant to study marketing and entrepreneurship. Tyler was recruited as a rising star on our offensive line. The team had just completed its second day of preseason workouts when firefighters were called to Dix Stadium at 9:18 a.m. and found Heintz unresponsive, according to the Record-Courier. "I want to send my condolences to Tyler Heintz's family and the Kent State football team", wrote Anthony Christian, who plays for the University of Rhode Island.

The news was announced in a statement by the college on Tuesday night, and the cause of death has yet to be announced.

Heintz's passing was also reported by WKTN Radio in Kenton.

Kent State football suffered a similar tragedy during the summer of 2014, when offensive lineman Jason Bitsko died from a heat ailment 10 days before the season opener. "Your football family will miss you".

In addition to the statement released from Kent State, his high school alma mater released their thoughts and prayers on Twitter following the tragic incident. Results could take weeks while they search for a definitive cause.
