(CBS) Family, friends and teammates at two universities are mourning the death of a former University of Illinois football player who died during a voluntary pre-season conditioning drill at Winona State University.
Shawn Afryl played on the offensive and defensive lines during his four years at Niles West High School, but played only one game in three years for the Illini. At Winona State, said Asst. Coach Cam Keller, he was switching from offensive line to nose guard and had made quite an impression in only a month on campus. He hoped to become a teacher and coach.
