A coroner report says a 17-year-old Kansas high school football player who died recently had a previous head injury that had not healed.
Michael Handler, deputy Johnson County coroner, told The Kansas City Star that Spring Hill football player Nathan Stiles died from a rebleed of a subdural hematoma he sustained in a game earlier in the season.
A subdural hematoma is a bleeding between two layers of tissue between the brain and the skull. Experts say about 100,000 high school athletes suffer concussions each year, but a subdural
hematoma is rare.
Handler said Stiles likely sustained the first injury during a game in early October. Handler said that injury was healing when Stiles' head hit the ground after a tackle in a game Oct. 28.
Stiles died Oct. 29.
