“Our coach was telling us he was going to be all right,” she said through tears. “We didn’t expect anything would happen.”
At the end of the game, teammates emerged from the locker room and said Murray may have suffered a heart attack, Bell told the News.

Coughlin told the website Murray was a member of the National Honor Society. “He was an amazing student and an amazing athlete,” she said. “He stood out in his athletics, his academics—everything.”
