Parents of TSU football player who passed away now suing school
http://espn.go.com/college-football/stor...ssee-state

The parents of a Tennessee State football player who died after collapsing during a practice last fall are suing the university for wrongful death. Wayne Jones III, a 19-year-old walk-on freshman defensive back, died Nov. 7 at after collapsing at a team workout. In the suit filed on in Tennessee's Division of Claims, Wayne Jones Jr. and Sonya Johns say an "unreasonable period of time elapsed before anyone approached him or attempted to provide any help" after their son collapsed. Jones' parents are seeking $5 million in punitive damages, though the state of Tennessee can't be held liable for more than $300,000 in wrongful death cases under state law. Tennessee State is a state university.
