WOOSTER, Ohio (AP) Officials say a football player at the College of Wooster has died after being hospitalized after a game Saturday when he complained he didn’t feel well.
A college spokesman says 21-year-old Clayton Gelb died Sunday afternoon at a hospital in Wooster. He was a senior offensive lineman on the team and a chemistry major at the school.
