A New York high school football player has died after an on-field collision.

FOX News Radio's Tonya J. Powers has the story:

Tom Cutinella, a sixteen-year old junior, played for Shoreham-Wading River High School. On Wednesday he collided with an opponent, then collapsed during the third quarter of the game. He suffered a head injury and was rushed to the hospital where he later died. Cutinella, who was a linebacker and guard, had been in intensive care after undergoing surgery.

He is the third high school player in the country to die in recent weeks.
