Funeral held for teen killed in football training accident
LAKE RONKONKOMA, N.Y. (AP) A New York community is remembering a popular high school football player who died last week during a pre-season conditioning camp.
The funeral for Joshua Mileto was held Tuesday in Lake Ronkonkoma (rahn-KAHN’-kuh-muh), Long Island.
Newsday (http://nwsdy.li/2w6U1Ce ) says young men wearing football jerseys lined the steps as the teen’s family followed the black coffin into the church.
The 16-year-old died Thursday when he was struck on the head by a log that he and teammates were carrying during a training exercise.
The teen loved the New York Giants – and also played baseball.
