High School Soccer Player Dies Following First Practice of the Season

PITTSBUGH--The first soccer practice of the season turned tragic for Beaver County Christian School, as 15-year-old sophomore Sam Dickson collapsed Monday morning at Brush Creek Park near Beaver Falls and was later pronounced dead at Ellwood City Hospital.

According to a release from the school's director of recruitment and advancement, Rose McChesney, Dickson collapsed during a break between drills as the practice was drawing to a close. Emergency crews arrived quickly, and he was transported to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 12:30 p.m.

"Naturally, we are in shock and grief over this event," the release said. "But along with his parents, we rejoice in Sam's vibrant faith and deep commitment to Christ. We grieve, but not as those 'Who have no hope,' as we read in 1 Thessalonians 4:13."
