Lamar junior lineman Tyler Davenport passes away

Lamar, AR (ArkansasVarsity.com) - Earlier in the summer Luke Matheson at ArkansasVarsity.com informed you of several young men who suffered heat casualties.

One of those young men, Lamar Warrior junior lineman Tyler Davenport, had been in a coma since passing out at practice in August.

Sadly, we have received news that Tyler has passed away.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the friends, family, and loved ones of Tyler.

Davenport collapsed from heat stroke at the end of practice August 11th. He was one of three Arkansas high school players that week to suffer heat related injuries.
