BURLINGTON, NC (AP) — A North Carolina high school quarterback
has died just days after leading his team to victory.

Williams High School football captain Harry Cohen died Monday at
North Carolina Children’s Hospital in Chapel Hill. The cause of
death hasn’t been disclosed.

Williams coach David Green says the last time he saw Cohen on
Friday night, he was sitting on a staircase with a big grin. Cohen
led his team to a 27-17 victory over Southern Alamance High by
rushing for 240 yards and passing for more than 100 yards.

Cohen stayed on the turf for a few minutes after running for his
team’s final score, but then got up and walked off the field.
